Job Seekers’ Roundtable for Thurs., July 16: How Resumes are Sorted

Join us Thurs., July 16 from 1-2:30 p.m. in the ground floor of the FOSS building for a Job Seekers’ Roundtable focusing on applicant tracking software and how resumes are sorted.

Today’s job seekers need to spend the time to make sure that our professional resumes can get by the Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), which is the software that reads your resume and ranks it according to keywords. Today about 65% of medium to large companies are now using Applicant Tracking Systems and this has created a nightmare for job seekers. In fact, a recent study indicated that about 75% of qualified job seekers are being eliminated because they do not know the rules.

We’ll share some of the do’s and don’ts with the usual treats and beverages. Bring your resume on a thumb drive, as we’ll broach other topics to do with resumes.
