75 applications on averagefor each opening (CareerBuilder, 2009).
38% spend less than a minute reviewing a resume ( 18%>.30s).
The biggest mistake is a lack of customization.
79% of human resource managers said they pay a lot more attention to resumes that are tailored to their open positions(CareerBuilder, 2010).
70% of seniors would use acareer centers to develop their resumes (NACE, 2010).
