The Applicant Tracking System or ATS is one of the more annoying parts of job applications. For anyone applying to a job online, you really ought to pay attention to this. Why? Because it blocks 70-80% of applicants without a human every looking at it. And some of those applicants are quite qualified.
When you apply to bigger companies, HR has decided to use software to receive and automatically judge your resume. We’re not a big fan of this and want to help, as this software sometimes blocks otherwise qualified applicants and prevents a human from ever seeing their resume. We don’t want this to happen to you. Instead, we want you to beat the applicant tracking system (ATS). Show them you’re qualified!
Thus we want to share a video from our Resume Guide. Here we share the best ways to beat the ATS and HR gatekeepers…
