Most likely, anytime you apply for a job through an online portal your resume is going to be sent through an applicant tracking system (ATS). ATS is software for recruiters and employers to easily streamline the hiring process and track candidates. According to research done by Jobscan, More than 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies use an ATS to streamline the recruiting process a but plenty of smaller employers have embraced the tool too. The ATS is the first to scan your resume, comparing the content to the job description and unless it finds a high enough match with your resume it may not even be viewed by a real person, therefore missing the opportunity to even interview for the position.
A complex resume, with tables, icons, and generic content copied directly from your LinkedIn profile isn’t likely to make it past the ATS screen. When you write a resume to beat the ATS, you must have the right qualifications, the right keywords, and the right resume formatting. Use the tips below to help make an ATS friendly resume.
