How To Get Your Resume Past The Applicate Tracking System...

Jan 09, 2019


Landing an interview for a position in a giant organization can feel impossible if you don’t have any personal connections.

People often blame the sheer volume of resumes that are submitted—HR simply can’t review them all with enough detail to see what a perfect candidate you are!

And this is partially true.  Many resumes are trashed before they’re even seen by human eyes. How is that possible?

Here’s how: Many large organizations rely on Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help pre-filter resumes. The systems work by scanning resumes for contextual keywords and key phrases, mathematically scoring them for relevance, and sending only the most qualified ones through for human review. 

In this video, I will give you 3 steps to get your resume past the ATS:

Step #1: Take The Overall Role Summary/Purpose Paragraph And Insert It Into Your Resume

Step #2: Match All Keywords And Buzz Phrases From The Job Announcement And Insert Then In Your Resume 

Step #3: Match The Job Announcements (Required) Requirements With The Duties in Your Resume
