Like many other people, you may feel that your resume is falling into a chasm when you press a button that says “apply online”, that behind it there is a black hole where your information is confused with thousands of others. In a certain way it is true, but either on paper or virtually, there are always ways to highlight and prove that you are the right person for the position.

According to data from the Pew Research Center, 79% of recruiters use the Internet to search for candidates for positions, currently most companies have databases or systems to apply online.
With the advent of digital tools, the recruitment of personnel for companies changed radically. Companies not only have a web page where you can upload the curriculum or apply to positions, you also have LinkedIn, videos, photographs, info graphics and thousands of formats to make a first impression.
If you are looking for work in this area, I share these three tips to simplify the process:
- Highlight what makes you ideal for the position. As recruiters, we can quickly detect when a person is suitable or not for a position by reading their qualities. If you apply for a position in administration in a consumer industry, highlight your knowledge of the industry, modify your resume so that the most relevant information is above and stand out from the rest of the data.
- It varies in formats, but think as a recruiter. Not all companies have the possibility to see a video curriculum or all electronic platforms accept it. Always attach your resume in a standard format and with all the information that the recruiter may need to make a decision
- Learn from the company before applying. Do you know what he does and what are his values? If you have similar values your resume should reflect them and then highlight them in an interview.
- Maybe you have to fall into black holes full of résumés from time to time, but you can be sure that we see and analyze all the candidates to find the right one for each position.
