There may be a lot of robots around here at LogicMonitor, but we promise that your resume will be reviewed by a human. Let’s look at some tips for how to get past the application review stage of our hiring process.
Resumes are the first impression you make when applying for a job. At the very least, make sure your document is neat, consistent, and professional. At the very most, have fun with it because creativity can go a long way. Here’s a quick checklist:
At LogicMonitor, we use the requirements listed in the job description to objectively review your resume. Do your best to truthfully mirror the qualifications we’re looking for in your resume. If the job description says “must have Java experience”, make sure you include the keyword “Java” if it applies to your experience.
Most documents created in Google Docs or in Word can be downloaded as a PDF. The benefit of sending your resume over as a PDF is that it will retain your formatting. If you’re worried about our applicant tracking system not being able to scan for keywords, don’t worry! All our resumes are reviewed by human eyes.
Cover letters aren’t mandatory anymore, but a cover letter can come in handy if:
If your resume clearly reflects the qualifications we’re looking for in the job description you can skip the cover letter. Instead of a cover letter, opt for a quick list highlighting your best qualities right on your resume.
It can be easy to send the same resume and cover letter to every job that comes up in a search in a rapid-fire approach, especially during uncertain times. But remember that the extra time you take to fine-tune an application for a specific job you’re excited about will make your resume shine and you will stand out as a thoughtful and passionate applicant.
