2 major problems with resumes:
1. Candidates mostly exaggerate their capabilities. Moreover, its composed in the same lines of the job description being applied for.
2. Recruiter spend less than 20 seconds reviewing it. Not all candidates are great writers either. Crucial credentials are ignored or overlooked and genuine candidates are neglected.
