Ready to hit send?
Getting a resume ready for employers in today’s job search may start with clearly written job descriptions and spellcheck, but today’s most successful resumes also get past high-tech recruiting tools such as applicant tracking software (ATS) and online job boards.
Today’s best resumes are written for people and robots.
The time you spent on font selections and spacing will pay off later on. Real people will read your resume once it makes it to their computer. However, if you can’t get your resume past the robots “screening” it, employers may never see it. Effective resumes now work just as well with the latest, high-tech recruiting technology as they do in the hand of a hiring manager.
Surprisingly, this is easier than you may think.
This list will help you make sure your resume is attention-grabbing for robots and also sets you up for a great interview in person.
