According to the 2012 Global Hiring Survey from the global professional association, Career Directors International (CDI), the practice of adding success stories as a separate addendum to executive summaries may pay off in more interviews.
CDI surveyed experienced professionals who “review resumes as part of their sourcing, hiring, and recruiting processes” in several countries and who deal mostly (46%) with executive and management level candidates.
According to the CDI Global Hiring Survey, “59% responded they were likely to read success stories, while 26.1% of respondents indicated they were unlikely to read additional material. Evidence suggests that to capitalize on the intentions of 59% of hiring authorities, executive job seekers should consider including additional examples of their skills and experience.”
