Candiates: Think Twice about Using “Easy Apply” on LinkedIn and Indeed

LinkedIn and Indeed “Easy Apply” Resumes:

Most recruiters I talk to say they just delete these without even looking.

They look terrible and don’t give any useful information. So, be careful when submitting your resume through LinkedIn, Indeed and other job board generated resumes services. While these “easy apply” systems make it very convenient to send your resume to multiple jobs, be aware that they produce a generic “one size fits all” style that quite often deletes too much information and destroys all of the hard work you put into formatting a good resume. Whenever possible, avoid the “Easy Apply” button and attach your own resume! Go Here for more of my resume tips.
