Job Hunters, here is how 21st Century Recruitment works – how to beat these system!
by Natalia Polishchouk
The nature of work and ways of getting employment is evolving! The 4th Industrial Revolution is changing the landscape in the world of work, therefore your adaptability to change your approach in getting opportunities for employment is critical for future success.
So, when 500+ people apply for the same job, Recruiters and HR does not have the time to go through all of them!
The recruitment industry got smart over the years and to deal with the large number of applicants, a new technology has been introduced called ATS -Application Tracking Systems!
We simply ask the ATS systems to give us the most keyword-based CV. What does that mean?
Well, we search via specific keywords related to the job, for example your current job title. ATS will weighs hard skills much more heavily than soft skills and one-word keywords. Most ATS consider frequency a factor—the more often a skill or keyword appears, the more important it is deemed and that is reflected in the match rate.
APPLICATION TRACKING SYSTEM also known as ATS – what is it and how it works
Each ATS views and interprets your CV differently. For example, some ATS recognize plural versions of a keyword as a match while others do not. These findings typically include your work history, job titles, relevant skills, and education, as well as contact information like your name, phone number, and email address.
WHY DOES YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT MATTER?
When the Internet is our main platform to find and apply for jobs – you cannot ignore the Digital aspect of technology. A strategic job hunt requires you to make it relevant – make it digital! It’s the only way forward to ensure you get your interview!
We have tested 100’s of CV and almost all of them are less than 25% key word based, substantially decreasing your application to be picked up by most ATS’s.
If you have been applying for job after job and have not received a single reply, it could be your CV.
If you want to beat the system for your next application allow us to test your CV.
I either when applying for Job and want to beat the ATS or want to beat the LinkedIn algorithm and be more visible and thus attracting more opportunities.
