As a tech writing hiring manager, I would say that the majority of
"cluelessness" in recruiting starts at the top (i.e., the client company)
and works its way through the recruiting chain from there. If the
hiring manager doesn't know what is needed that's strike one. If
the company engages generic office recruiting agencies who are
unable to hold the hiring managers' hands and draw out their needs
because it's too cheap to engage recruiters who have backgrounds
in their kind of product or in technical writing, that's strike two.
And at the risk of resurrecting that thread on really long resumes,
if the candidates' CV is untargeted and contains everything but the
kitchen sink, that pretty much ends your chances..

The recruitment landscape has changed dramatically for those of us seeking jobs. It has become a real art to figure out how to get past the gatekeepers. When you get to interview with someone who knows the skills needed for the job it is great, but I have found that it doesn't happen until after a couple phone interviews.
