Have you ever wondered where your resume goes when you hit submit? Did it go to someone’s email, a corporate management system, or just into a big black hole? As technology evolves, how we apply to jobs continues to change. Some companies use an online screening tool known as an Applicant Tracking System which parses and screens resumes before a human being ever sees it.
This session will cover and answer the following questions:
- What is an Applicant Tracking System? (ATS)
- How do you know you are applying through an ATS?
- How does an ATS work?
- Why do companies use these when looking for candidates?
- How can you increase your chances of getting your resume into the YES pile?
