Why Job Recruiters Are Not Looking at Your Resume

Posted by Zack Springmann on Nov 15, 2021 10:13:25 AM

Unless you are able to bypass the Applicant Tracking System, or ATS, an employer will never even see your resume. An ATS is a system designed to sort and filter candidates based on qualifications for a position that are provided in resumes and cover letters. These systems make the hiring process more manageable for employers as they get hundreds of resumes per day by sorting through the ones that contain very little relevant information for the job. These systems make it imperative to customize your resume for each job and utilize critical keywords as they pertain to the job.

Why is It Important to Match Your Resume with Your Job Description?

Posted by Kenneth Davis on Feb 9, 2021 9:00:00 AM

When applying for that first corporate job, the question that goes through most prospective employees’ minds is, “how do I get this company to notice me, what will help me stand out?” The answer is simple: a resume/cover letter that matches your job description. Jobs are not one size fits all, so your resume should be fine-tuned to each employer when applying for a job. If you give the same resume to every job, you better hope that every job has the same description of what they need. Doing this will really limit you from becoming a prospective employee and make you easily skippable. When coming out of school, showing your accomplishments and job history is cool for the show, but that is not what is going to get you hired. The reason why the employer made this opening in the first place was to look for SKILLS that would be assets to their company. By matching your resume to the job description and showing why you should be chosen, you will have a much higher chance of getting selected for an interview.
