What is ATS and How Can It Help Your Job Search?

Recruiters and HR professionals use a variety of tools and techniques to find the best candidates for open positions. No doubt you know that several of these include online searches for candidates. But some hiring managers never do this. Why? Because they use ATS to do the heavy lifting first.

ATS stands for Applicant Tracking System, and it is a program used by HR managers to sift through applications.

Online and Traditional Resumes will explain how you can use it. We recommend using a few keywords from the job description in your resume and cover letter. This will help highlight your application and bring it to the hiring manager’s eyes.
