“I will review your resume and we will go from there”.-X!-
This means that the interviewer will look at the applicant’s resume, evaluate the applicant’s qualifications and experience and once the interviewer has made his/her decision, he/she will proceed to inform the applicant.
The interviewer could have also said, “I will review your resume and once I have analysed it, we will proceed with the interview process”.
