This clinic provides a basic overview of the content and formatting requirements to get your resume past the computerized applicant tracking systems (ATS) that screen your resume before the hiring manager gets to see it. Bring your resume and a job posting for a position that interests you. You’ll get input on the important keywords that you should include in your resume and then get feedback on specific formatting features of your resume that might cause problems for the ATS.
After completing this workshop you will be able to:
- Identify keywords to include in your resume based on a job posting that you provide
- Recognize the formatting features in your own resume that will “confuse” applicant tracking systems
- Revise your resume to improve your chances of having your resume looked at by a human being
