There is a solution to get your resume and cover letter noticed.
Here are a few questions to keep in mind, as you learn about an ATS resume format:
All those questions and more will be answered.
Who Am I?
I am Hanna. I am just like you.
My resume was rejected over and over, feeling frustrated, sad, and wanted to give up. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from a very expensive university (actually two degrees), and could not figure out why employers were NOT beating down on my door offering me a job.
I learned it’s not about my education or experience, it was HOW I have presented my information on a resume. I learned through a recruiter friend, and as a Hiring Manager myself, how resumes are selected. Once I learned the formula, I had 3 or 4 calls from recruiters a day! I said a day!
ATS Resume Example
An ATS resume format includes:
⇒ Simple resume format
⇒ Keywords for resumes and cover Letters
⇒ Key phrases that are similar to a job description
⇒ Chronological resume Format
⇒ No pictures (I am sure you are good-looking, but save that cute picture for another time)
⇒ Best resume fonts: Times Roman, Arial, Sans or Tahoma
⇒ Little to no graphics
ATS represents an Applicant Tracking System or Application Tracking System. The terms are used the same.
An ATS system is an employer's best friend. This system is programmed with keywords and phrases that match job titles, skills, education and job descriptions. When the ATS flags a resume with keywords it is then sent to an employer, and those applicants are contacted for a job interview.
Why Do Employers use an ATS?
An ATS is a fast way to search, find and contact job seekers for a job interview. There are thousands of applications submitted online for one job. An ATS system helps employers filter resumes and cover letters that match the posted job description. An ATS is like an assistant and will send "qualified" resumes to employers. It is more important now to have your skills and experience in an ATS resume format.
Now, employers use more advanced technology to select job seekers. Learn more about A.I in the next section.
Your resume MUST have matching keywords and phrases in the correct format, to get a job interview. No exceptions.
Artificial Intelligence use is on the rise, as recruiters and employers narrow down what they are looking for in a job applicant. AI takes the stress and strain from employers and streamlines the hiring process.
With thousands of resumes competing for one job, employers are looking for more innovative resources to fulfill job vacancies.
The reality is an algorithm will pass your resume on to an employer.
This is another reason why you need your experience in an ATS resume format to get noticed and contacted by employers.
Do you have that resume?
Do you have an eye catching cover letter?
Do you have a job letter of interest (email)?
Please read of an article from LinkedIn.com, and the impact of AI in the hiring process.
"AI is used to screen application materials such as a resume or a brief on an applicant’s key competencies.
AI-based resume screening tools can highlight to recruiters which candidates they should reach out to first. AI is also used to decide who is contacted for a job interview.
They can match a candidate’s skills and competencies to open requisitions and job requirements. They have brought significant efficiencies to HR departments by drastically cutting the amount of time spent processing pools of applications.
Job applicants who understand this system can game the algorithms to get an easier path to the interview stage of their application.
As we all know, recruiting professionals often cannot afford to give sufficient time and attention to each resume they receive.
At the time of submitting your application, your resume is entered into an ATS that matches your experience with the required qualifications in the job description. Leveraging AI, an ATS can match candidates based on their skills.
This is a step forward in expediting the hiring process and making it more efficient as many resumes are not reflective of the skills the HR is looking for."
