The job-hunting process can be extensive and a bit overwhelming. With company research, networking, and seemingly endless job applications, the search for a job seems like a full-time position itself. Even after all of the hard work, you still receive little to no leads. So what are you doing wrong?
Aside from the fact that there is high competition and volume of other applicants, many companies have turned to applicant tracking systems (ATS). An ATS is a hiring software that functions as a screening system for employers, allowing them to look at only the best job applications.
While these systems can have significant benefits, they’ve also added a layer of complexity when it comes to crafting a winning resume. Now, your resume needs to be written both for people and for bots.
So in a world where 98% of Fortune 500 companies have turned to applicant tracking systems to weed out applicants, how can you optimize your resume? Check out this infographic from Resume-Now to figure out how to craft an ATS-compatible resume to beat the bots and get noticed by employers.
