Topic: Applicant Tracking System (ATS) – The Gatekeepers and How to Beat the Bots!

Today here on the show we’re talking about the ATS that is, the Applicant Tracking System and how we can beat the Bots!  Now I’ve told you before that recruiters and hiring managers typically spend an average of 6secs scanning a resume? 6 seconds. But that’s only if your resume passes the initial screening of an applicant tracking system or ATS.  So I’m going to help you out and give you some tips to get past and beat the Bots and land into the hands of a recruiter.

I’ll walk you through the process of how the applicant tracking systems (ATS) work? And then we go on a search and rescue into Resume Land and the Resume Black Hole

More often than not, no one ever contacts you about your application and you're left wondering what you could have done differently to change the outcome.

Sound familiar? You're not alone. Argh – the Résumé Black Hole – overload. So the big question remains - What happens after I submit my resume? Let me tell you. Let’s get our geek on.
