What Recruiters Look at in the Six Seconds it takes them to decide if you're a match

I have always wanted to see one of these!!

The Ladders did a study using eye tracking technology to monitor where recruiters focus in the six seconds that it takes them to decide if the resume is a match or not.

It shows where the recruiters' eyes focused to digest the information they needed.  Notice how no one spent any time looking at the bottom of the resume on the left.  That's because it's got too many words crammed together.  People like space.

Like I always say:  simplify it, shorten it, give it space.
