ATS is necessary.
Yeah, I said that.
Applicant Tracking Systems are necessary in this age of the job search world and learning how to get your resume past them is CRUCIAL to a successful job search.
👉Take a minute and think about how many applications a recruiter gets for each position. Due to technology’s advancements that have given us the opportunity to apply and communicate online, it’s not so easy to personally analyze each application when you have 15 positions to fill.
👥If the wish of a “more personalized” screening process were granted, your outcome would likely not change.
Because there is absolutely no way for recruiters to screen that many resumes and if they did, you’d probably have about 2 seconds to wow them and that’s no easy task.
ATS is here to make recruiters’ time meaningful.
🛑Stop blaming recruiters for “not doing their jobs.”
🛑Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
If you’re not willing to put in the work to get the results you want, there’s no one else to blame but yourself.
🥾So pull yourself up by your bootstraps and create yourself a successful job search.
