Parents know it. High-school students and college grads know it, too. When applying for a coveted position, it can be just plain tough to draw attention to your resume.
According to a recent report from the Economic Policy Institute, "The bottom line is that for recent college graduates, finding a good job has become much more difficult."
Why? Because for many industries, one open position can garner a lot of attention. According to ERE, a professional recruiting company, "[On average, 250 resumes are received for each corporate job opening.]"

And another statistic from Talent Function Group LLC, paints the job market as decidedly bleak, "For the specific case of an online job posting, on average, 1,000 individuals will see a job post, 200 will begin the application process, 100 will complete the application, 75 of those 100 resumes will be screened out by either the ATS or a recruiter, 25 resumes will be seen by the hiring manager, 4 to 6 will be invited for an interview, 1 to 3 of them will be invited back for final interview, 1 will be offered that job and 80 percent of those receiving an offer will accept it."
So how do you get your resume to stand out?
