Why the best resumes come from the worst candidates.
Shane Bernstein - Apr 27, 2020
A Resume is a self-proclaimed document. Anyone
can write anything, and here are the reasons why a great Resume is a telltale sign that it comes from a bad candidate:
Great Talent does not need a Resume
Most good employees have no need to write a Resume, because their work speaks for itself. They get their next job from personal recommendations, or from jumping around in a close knit industry. When they are forced to write a Resume for a new job, they have no idea how to write a good one.
Bad Education Institutions teach their students how to write great Resumes.
Many for profit Education Institutions try to artificially increase the ratio of hired students. They are more interested in hacking the recruitment process than to give a proper education. That is why they perfect their students ability to write whatever they know will result in a hire.
75% of the skilled workforce will never apply for a job
This is called being passive, meaning they are not actively looking for a job. For a good employee, their talent makes them move organically from one job to the next, so they are never applying to Job Postings or submitting Resumes. Asking for a Resume means you are searching through the bottom 25% of the talent pool, much lower caliber level.
