Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Mastery

Get the Score that Gets You Past the Robot and in Front of a Human

What is an Applicant Tracking System?

Using keywords to identify “best fit” candidates, Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) are software programs that scan your resume after it has been submitted for an application.


97% of Fortune 500 Companies Now Use ATS

Being judged by a robot may seem dehumanizing, but it is a fact that this “digital gatekeeper” scans your received resume, compares it to the job description you want to pursue and assigns a score based on how well you resume matches up.


The Score You Need to Get In Front of a Human

Your resume needs to score 80% or higher to have a good chance of getting an interview. A score of 80% or higher will get your resume past the robot and in front of a human being. A score of 80% or lower takes you out of the running.
