In 2018 we discarded on average 9 resumes a week for various reasons. Poorly written resumes with obvious mistakes in grammar, spelling, format, and content were given an initial look and then dropped from consideration.
All candidates will have their resumes compared to online professional media accounts such as Linked-In to look for errors and omissions. All candidates will have their social media such as Facebook, Instagram and twitter reviewed to ensure they do not demonstrate support for or are part of organizations whose beliefs or actions run counter to the principles of our company.
Those who support white supremacists or nationalists and organizations that display bigoted, racist or gender bias will not be considered for employment. Matthew Parker, CEO, ISA
