Nearly all companies rely on some kind of applicant tracking system to aid their process of recruiting new talent. Applicant tracking systems (ATS) scan and sort through an indefinite number of resumes to create a list of qualified applicants. A human typically does not have to review an application until after an initial scan of applications, requiring extra care to ensure candidates can pass the software’s initial scan. The perfect ATS optimized resume will be as clear as possible, easy to read, and include important keywords to rank a resume among the highest of the group. Review our steps to see how one would create an ATS optimized resume to avoid making mistakes that will toss the resume aside.
