See how your resume compares to other job seekers that have applied for the same position
Ever send a resume to an employer and feel like it was lost in a black hole? According to a Personified survey of 250,000 job seekers, nearly 60 percent of job applicants reported they never received a response from employers they recently applied to for a job. CareerBuilder launched a free tool this week called hireINSIDER that helps to remove some of the guesswork from the application process by enabling job seekers to see how they stack up against other applicants for a job. By getting an inside peek into the qualifications of other candidates, job seekers are able to better assess if they are a viable candidate for the job and the likelihood of an employer contacting them.
