Persuasive Resumes


Have you ever applied for the perfect job, the one where you meet or exceed every requirement, only to never hear back from the employer? Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) are the newest game in town when it comes to screening applicants for the hiring process. With the enormous number of applications a company can receive for a single open position, ATS are fast becoming the screening process of choice. 95% of large organizations and 50% of mid-size organizations use ATS. Questions to consider:

  • Now that ATS are so widely used, what do I need to do to keep my résumé from being rejected before a human even reads it?
  • Is my current résumé keyword-optimized and with scannable design, and if it is not, how do I correct this?
  • How long should my résumé be? Does the one-page rule still prevail, and how long is too long?
  • Concerning visual compliance and readability, why are font size and style, white space and layout so important in ATS compatibility?

Knowing the answers to these and other questions can mean the difference between a well-written, dynamic résumé that secures the interview, and one that is simply not going to cut it in today's very challenging job search competition. A professionally written résumé is a sound investment in your future.
