The pandemic led to the loss of millions of jobs in the country as well as around the world. Students graduating from college found themselves left in the lurch with employment prospects looking meek. A lot of things may have come to a standstill during the COVID-19 pandemic but the need to earn a living to make ends meet can never take a break. The already competitive nature of being able to land a job got even more cutthroat over the previous year. Recruiters are forced to be extra picky about whom they choose to work for their organization.

There are a few things that a recruiter looks for in a job application. To have these elements in your resume would improve your chances of landing the interview and if you manage to make an impression, even the job. Twitter user Slizagna decided to share on Twitter some useful resume tips from when she worked as a recruiter at a Fortune 100 company. She particularly had fresh graduates in mind, who would probably be starting from scratch and need more hand-holding, when she wrote this. She did an amazing job at consolidating the important points. Get a pen and take notes of what a recruiter has to say:
























Peter Baskin, chief product officer at Modern Hire CNBC, “Though the outbreak is impacting the way we work, it’s not impacting our business needs — and as a result, hiring needs are still crucial and open positions still need to be filled to continue providing strong business outcomes and value." And Sli also had a final bonus tip for us.




And a little postscript.




Job seekers on Twitter were of course beyond grateful for her thoughtful thread.
