What is Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?

We at RnR Services are here to help you create the resume you need to land your dream job. During the past few years, we have recruited numerous candidates and reviewed hundreds of resumes. Most candidates make similar mistakes and understanding a resume’s purpose can help fix these problems.

Are recruiters scrapping all our resumes?

You find the perfect job opportunity, submit your resume and then pray to get a call, but nobody does. Unfortunately, your resume never reaches the hiring manager because the ATS rejects it, and you keep wondering why you are not on the list of selected candidates.

If you think the first hurdle in getting a job is a recruiter then you are wrong, it’s ATS. Most of the big companies and job sites filter resume through Applicant Tracking System. It rejects approximately 80% of resumes before they see a human eye.

When you apply for a job, your resume does not land in hands of a hiring manager. ATS collects, sorts, scans, and ranks all the resumes as per the given instructions. It helps recruiters by choosing resumes and filtering them down to 15-20% of the whole bunch.

ATS ranks the resumes based on their format, keywords, and many other things. It means if you don’t write and format the resume considering ATS standards then it can reject even a perfect candidate.

On average a job opening receives 250 to 300 applications. Out of these hiring managers shortlist only 4 to 6 for interviews. Big companies receive thousands of resumes each week. Almost 75 to 80% of resumes are never seen by human eyes. It’s practically not possible to go through every resume so ATS comes into play.

Once it filters the resumes, recruiters quickly go through them looking for suitable candidates. They don’t have much time to see each resume in depth so it’s important to highlight your skills.

Is ATS here to stay?

Yes, it is here to stay and with time its use is going to increase. They are good for HR as they reduce the time taken to hire a candidate but not so favourable for candidates. So, having an ATS-friendly resume is the first big step towards securing an interview.

Don’t let it stand in the way of your dream job.
