Did you know that roughly 75% of resumes submitted are not read by the recruiter or hiring manager? Instead, they rely on tools designed to screen resumes. Most Canadian employers use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). If you’re applying to a large organization, chances are you’ll face an ATS. If you’re applying through any online form, you’re applying through an ATS. Even job sites like Indeed and LinkedIn have their own built-in ATS.
Many times a qualified candidate will fall through the cracks because their resume is not optimized for ATS.
Enhance your resume by using keywords that describe your skills and qualifications specifically those that match what you see in the job posting and on the company’s website.
