A very simple way to increase the odds of getting your resume looked at
Recruiters like myself receive hundreds if not thousands of resumes each week. Hiring Managers can receive dozens each week. I see document names that almost make me automatically hit the delete key such as Resume.doc or 455323532.pdf. How lame! Instead, how about something catchy like “Make sure you’re sitting down before opening.doc”, or “Dave Sgro bad at singing but a great recruiter.doc”.
These kinds of catchy document names are sure to spark some curiosity and the recipient has to open it!
