Applicant Tracking Systems & Your Resume
When you apply online, your resume goes into an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). There are a multitude of ATS Systems, old and new, rigid and flexible, all reading your resume differently. Learn the secrets to craft an ATS-friendly resume that reaches the hands of the hiring manager.
How to Prepare a Professional Summary
The top 1/3 of your resume is prime real estate! The typical recruiter spends between 8-30 seconds scanning your resume. Thumbs up or thumbs down. You have to attract their attention within those limited time constraints. We'll show you how.
