Getting you "Hired"! I'm Cheryl Casone with the FOX Business Network.

A recent study from TheLadders, a job-matching service, found HR pros take an average of six seconds to review one resume.

Four seconds for four areas: Job titles, previous employment, dates, and education... last two seconds are for everything else such as compatible qualifications.

A few tips for resume do's and don't's from the CEO of LaSalle Network, Tom Gimbel:

  • Don't use an inappropriate email address. Keep it professional.
  • Don't link to a social media pages except maybe LinkedIn.
  • Don't abbreviate or type like you text.
  • Finally, don't include high school unless it is your highest level of education.

For the do's on that resume:

  • Keep it simple.
  • Leave out graphics and art, the "objective" statement and "skills" category.
  • Include your graduation date and GPA, as well as the location with that city and state.

Remember, it gets down to numbers and understanding the hiring funnel.
