Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)

LEARN HOW TO USE THE APPLICANT TRACKING SYSTEM (ATS) TO YOUR ADVANTAGE WHEN APPLYING ONLINE

If you think the first obstacle to getting a job interview is a recruiter’s judgment, you’re not seeing the whole picture. 98% of Fortune 500 companies and a growing number of small and mid-sized businesses filter resumes through an applicant tracking system (ATS) before someone takes a look… if they ever do.

Learn how to get your resume (and LinkedIn) to rank highly within ATS so that it will be seen by the human Decision Makers scheduling job interviews.
