You Have 'Zero Chance' Of Getting Hired If This Is On Your Resume, Says Former Google Recruiter

If you want to get a leg up on the competition when applying for a new position, you should be as concise as possible on your resume.

What To Know Before You Apply: Recruiters often read through countless resumes, screening for the best potential candidates from a faceless pool of applicants.

According to a CNBC report, citing former Alphabet recruiter Nolan Church, putting long blocks of text in a resume is likely to get you thrown out of contention right away.

"The No. 1 thing I don't want to see on a resume is probably text bricks ... endless streams of text that have a lot of words but not a lot of content," Nolan said.

Some recruiters may let it slide, but for Nolan, all consideration ends there. If you put large text blocks on your resume, "there's zero chance you're going to move forward," he said.
