FAQs

Can you explain how you create an Applicant Tracking System Friendly Resume?

The Applicant Tracking System Friendly Resume is specifically designed to look beautiful to the eye and yet to have all of the technical elements that make it acceptable to the Applicant Tracking System so that it will not be caught by filters or rejected. The protocol behind the process is highly technical, and can best be explained as marrying the two together via a proprietary code. The computer filters are unable to detect the visual elements that make the resume appealing, while the human that actually sees the finalized resume will not be able to see the machine-friendly version that would appear dull and lifeless.

Can you give me more information on the difference between an Applicant Tracking System Friendly Resume and the Human version?

When you put together a resume, you do so with an idea to how it will look – you’re trying to impress the person who will be looking at your credentials by making the resume’s content strong and the visuals appealing. Unfortunately, the very design elements that attract the human eye actually confuse the Applicant Tracking Systems that most companies are using today. These systems are programmed to look for specific words and that are easy to read – things like headings, bold font or interesting typeface, and other graphic elements may impress a Human Resources Manager, but may cause the candidate management system to reject your application, preventing that manager from ever actually laying eyes on it. An Applicant Tracking System Friendly Resume is a combination of the two: it looks good to a human, but it is hiding a computer-friendly version that will prevent the Applicant Tracking System from screening you out based upon the attractive design of the Human version.
