Cutting Edge Resumes Scanned Through Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
What is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?
An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs. An ATS can be implemented or accessed online on an enterprise or small business level, depending on the needs of the company and there is also free and open source ATS software available.

How do Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) work?
Applicant tracking systems process resumes submitted by applicants and sometimes even use social media to actively recruit prospective employees. When you submit your resume through an ATS, it stores your resume as an entry in the database. The recruiters then search for keywords [i.e.: marketing keywords] in resumes that are stored in their ATS to fill each particular job opening they are assigned to recruit. Your resume must be written in a way that is legible by ATS, must contain the right keywords, and must be formatted properly, so that it is found easily by recruiters as they conduct their search. With a quick search online, one may also find applicant tracking system comparison reports. What is important, is that we write a keyword optimized resume that we subsequently scan through an ATS resume checker and ensure that you receive an industry specific, professional level resume.
How effective is your resume?
Keywords and other related terms
Does it rank in the Top 10? Are you sending resume after resume, and still not getting called in for an interview? The problem might not be with your credentials, but your resume. I can help you fix that.
The resumes that I strategically write go through applicant tracking systems (ATS) without complication In a world where technology is starting to pervade every sector, the recruitment process is no different. Increasingly, companies are using automated Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to manage their recruitment needs. While before, recruiters would have to go through each resume individually, now they just process them in bulk via their resume ATS checker. They filter resumes through an ATS resume checker by precise keywords according to industry specific requirements. And resumes that don’t strategically disperse these words are stuck in the ‘resume black hole’ – they are received by the company but not viewed. If the ATS is between you and your dream job, I can remove it from the equation by developing a keyword optimized resume in such a way that it goes through the resume keyword checker, and to the recruiters.
The importance of keywords in a resume The recruitment process has now become highly dependent upon technology and in recent years the job-hunting world is almost exclusively centered on the mysterious world of keywords. Keywords that are going to help your resume jump from that generic electronic database and into the laps of the recruiters. An optimized resume with specific keywords for the resume search engine is conducive to appearing in search results instead of being ignored.
I write resumes with industry-specific keywords Not every company filters through the resumes they receive with the exact same keywords. That is why it’s important to have highly specialized and industry-specific keywords in a resume. For instance, keywords used by a marketing firm would be completely different from an engineering consultancy company. This is where I come in with my experience as a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and former Executive Recruiter. I help optimize your resumes with keywords that pertain to “your industry” and “your plans”.
