It is recommended that you use a two-step process to screen resumes. In the first screening, identify everyone who meets the “must have” qualifications outlined in your job posting. These typically include a minimum level of education and work experience.On the second screening, you need to look more closely at a smaller number of applicants. The following are some criteria you might consider using to help you during this second round:
Take Into Account Cultural Differences in Resume Styles
Example: It is traditional in some cultures for a person to add personal information or their photo in a resume.
Example: An applicant may have worked at a similar job as a volunteer.
Example: Women and people with disabilities may have taken time out of the workforce. New immigrants may take longer to earn a post-graduate degree as they may need time to adapt to their new country, or language.
