Career Catalyst Webinar: Beat the Bots! Get Your Resume Past the Applicant Tracking System
August 17, 2023; 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET
Location: This webinar can be taken from the comfort of your home or office – remotely from any tablet, laptop or computer.
Webinar Description: Most mid-size and larger organizations use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to pre-screen resumes. If your resume does not match 85% of the criteria from the job posting, your resume may never be seen by human eyes. This webinar will share tips and tricks to “get around” the ATS to land your resume in the “yes” pile and will also provide general resume advice.
