An online job ad receives about 250 resumes on average. From these 250 applications, about 2% receive interviews.

Top 3 Reasons A Staffing Agency Is Preferable To Self-Submission
  • 98% of Fortune 500 companies use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), which often weed out 75% of applications before they reach human eyes, sometimes for irrelevant reasons like the way your resume is formatted.
  • As many as 50% of jobs are filled internally before even making it to the public eye. Some of these jobs are posted online to fulfill legal requirements, but an external candidate has little chance of landing the role.
