Career Care Package - How to beat the applicant tracking system

All job seekers

This, by a long mile, is the biggest question we get on resumes. What do you do to beat the bots and make sure your hard crafted CV gets actual eyeballs on it. The majority of large employers and recruitment consultants use an applicant tracking system. They use them to screen the deluge of applicants they suspect will apply for a role – using an algorithm dividing strong applicants from the weak – saving them time and money. Most systems are also designed to track the outcome of your application, in terms of providing data to the recruiter to measure the efficiency of their recruitment process. Some experts assert that over 75% resumes never actually hit human eyes. How do application tracking systems actually work? Should we call them applicant terrorising systems? Well, this is what we’re discussing today with resume writer and recruiter, Olga Barrett. Here’s what we’re covering:

  • What is an applicant tracking system?
  • Why do employers use applicant tracking systems?
  • How do applicant tracking systems work?
  • How can you tell if a recruiter/employer is using an applicant tracking system?
  • Can you set your resume up to beat the bots in the applicant tracking system?
  • Do you really need to re-write your resume every time you apply for a job?
  • What happens when you include tables, images and fancy fonts on your resume?
Join us today, we'll be jumping up and down to answer all your questions.
