Shortcomings of a resume

Resumes have been a critical piece to the job search process. It provides the first impression for the company of the candidate. Although some companies do multiple step interviews, there are significant shortcomings on relying on the resume for hiring candidates.

If you decide to hire a candidate, its important to know if the candidate has the right qualifications. Even more important, the candidate needs to have a good attitude (can be easily trained), is proactive (at times projects needs to be owned), strong work ethic (needs to be motivated beyond financially), a team player (needs to get along with coworkers) and lastly blends well with the company culture (a bad apple can ruin the whole basket).

Do you still rely only on the resume?
