Having been one, I know this for a fact: Recruiters are a cynical bunch! Having spent a large portion of their professional lives reading resumes, they have seen every trick in the book.
And this makes them extremely hard to impress…
If I told you how to impress more half the recruiters in America, would you do it?
A survey by Workfolio found 56% of recruiters are more impressed by a personal website than by any other job seeker promotional tool (including resumes). They also found that only 7% of job seekers actually have a personal website.
