What are the key aspects of a resume which greatly ease the process of getting through the recruiter and hiring manager phase.

Assuming qualifications are met how does one prioritize, is there a cover letter, how dense should the resume be?

    Always 1 page resume, nothing more.

    Any grammar mistake will make people pass your resume instantly.

    Only education above college, no one cares where you went to high school.

    Describe your role in past companies with the tech you used.

      What about side projects?

      Sure, if they are relevant.

      Small web pages and personal blogs won't make a difference, but contributing to open source protects are a big plus

      Guess that's my issue, most people I run it aren't engineers at these companies...
