Playlists to review resumes to
Reviewing resumes is a pain. After looking through hundreds of resumes in a sitting, your eyes start to glaze over, the words become a jumble of text, and you start thinking, “you know, resume is a really weird word… resume, resume, resume…“
To make good hiring decisions, you have to be in a positive headspace. In this context, a positive mindset doesn’t mean that you have to enjoy filtering through resumes — you just have to focus on the reasons to say “yes” to an application, rather than saying “no”.
We’re no psychologists, but after reviewing 50,000+ resumes, we’ve found that it’s much easier to maintain that mindset during tedious tasks if you have a rad playlist.
We’ve compiled 14 playlists for reviewing resumes — everything from country to hyperpop. A la the Pomodoro Technique, they’re roughly 30 minutes each, which should hit that sweet spot between staying productive and not getting distracted.
Here's what we recommend:
- Pull up your list of resumes
- Choose your playlist
- Turn off Autoplay
- Hit play, and start reviewing resumes
- When the playlist is finished, take a break! Stretch, hydrate, walk your dog, etc.
- Repeat as needed
How to turn off Autoplay
