I bet you are not a newcomer to the fact that most resumes you submit online are first screened not by humans but technology – the ATS?
Applicant Tracking System; Applicant tracking systems act as an electronic gatekeeper for an employer. The ATS parses a resume’s content into categories and then scans it for specific keywords to determine if the job application should be passed along to the recruiter. Its job is to essentially weed out unqualified applicants so the recruiter can devote his or her time to evaluating the candidates who are more likely to be a match for the position. In other words, the ATS is apt to toss the least-qualified candidates, rather than identify the applicants who are the best fit. – Top resume.
You know what this means? It means you have to prepare your resume to impress not only human eyes but bots!
If your resume successfully scales through, meeting all of the technology’s programmed requirements, then congrats. It just snagged a first-class flight ticket to your recruiter’s desk.
Chile, it’s a competition out there babe, and you’ve got to bring your A-game to the job hunt.
