During a job search, you’re probably sending out dozens of resumes and applications with the hopes of landing your dream position.
The reality is however, all of those resumes and applications you’ve just sent out aren’t actually going to a real person. They’re being scanned, analyzed, and filtered through by an artificial intelligence program known as ATS (applicant tracking system).
