The statistics indicate that on average a job seeker spends about 45-60 SECONDS reading a job description before sending his / her resume. I can tell you frankly that 45-60 minutes was what I spent per a job application, which included attentive reading of the description for 2-3 times, checking of the company’s website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, tailoring of my cover letter,  sending over, and tweeting about it. One example of such a tweet to a potential employer is below. He responded that the position was filled, but by that time I already had a contract myself. One of my job interviews was scheduled right after they saw my tweet.

Hope I was able to help you. Good luck!
