You’re growing your team. How do you sift through the pile of incoming resumes? For younger candidates, how important is a GPA? For more experienced candidates, how do you qualified relevant experience?Most job applications arrive electronically these days. Email is a wonderful thing and makes it extremely easy to receive applications without the overhead of taking phone calls. Unfortunately, this also means that many unqualified applicants can submit their resumes with relative ease. Applications will come from people with little or no correlation to those listed in the description of your job opening. Traditional wisdom would be to read all the resumes and sort them into a pile of ‘good’, ‘questionable’, and ‘no’. You schedule the ‘good’ pile for interviews first and if no worthy candidate presents them self then you proceed to the ‘questionable’ pile.
