Beating the Applicant Tracking System

Lynne Williams

About this event:

As a job seeker, are you wondering why you are not getting any response to your online submissions? Uncover why human eyes may never see the resumes you submit online and discover what you need to do to optimize your resume to beat the dreaded ATS.

Have your current resume available to mark up during the workshop.

The content of this presentation was published in chapter 8 of the book published by the ATD (Association of Talent Development) called Find Your Fit: A Practical Guide to Landing the Job You Love. Dick Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute wrote the forward in this book and 15 other career coaches around the country also contributed chapters.
