How long will a recruiter really look at your resume?

You spend hours carefully writing your resume, you sweat the words you use, you write each line as carefully as you can. So how much time will a recruiter look at it? I know it's the not the answer you want but the fact is, it depends.

If the resume is not clear and poorly written, you will get a few seconds.

If the formatting is good, the sections are clear, and it is well written they will take their time with it. At that point you may get a few minutes which is better than the widely published 15 seconds. Bottom line is you should take your time and write a well thought out resume, it will pay off.
