How to beat the ATS?

Your work doesn't speak for itself. You do!

Do not lie.

Do not misrepresent yourself or your skills,

Do not claim experience, traits, or knowledge that don't represent you

1

#Tip 2

Personalization and resume tricks

Your resume should聽normally have a header, a "seeking statement," I would say this is your career mission. If you want personalize your statement use the company鈥檚 name and address them in your mission statement.

聽Taleo, one of the most popular ATS packages automatically gives applicants points for using the company name in the application.

"If you use the company name once, the Taleo system will give you a point. If you use it twice, you get two points in their system. If you want to see how it works, they're very open about the process;聽Taleo聽even has videos on YouTube that show how they eliminate candidates who don't know how to play this game. ( Source : Taleo)

聽Include your most current skill sets and four -- only your TOP four -- accomplishments, each with a net result: revenue generated, deadlines met or exceeded, money saved,

For example.

Each should include the name of the company for whom you worked, where you worked (the Location/City) your job title, dates (From/To) and your job role.

Here鈥檚 an example:

Project Manager ( Reporting to Executive Director), Company Name: XYZ Private LTD

Dates Employed: Mar 2016 鈥 Dec 2020, Employment Duration: 1 yr 10 months

Location: Dubai

Key Accomplishments:

  1. 鈥淎chieved 300% of my FY2019 Quota. Achieved 199% of my FY2016 Quota.
  2. Achieved 125% of my Budget having a closure of $1.25M. (2017-2018) (MENA Region)鈥
  3. Onboarded 16 key clients to generate annual revenues of nearly AED 5 million per annum.聽
  4. Achieved 155% of my Budget having a closure of $1.25M. (2019- 2020) (MENA Region)鈥

Have two resumes a short form and a long form. "All the extras, all the other details, should be saved for your long-form resume.聽

#Tip3

References - Don't neglect networking and social media.

If you want to make sure you're landing in a job and at a company where you can thrive, you can work on beefing up your networking skills and generating referrals from friends, family and former colleagues at organizations.

Majority of the jobs are found as a result of networking, so there's a great chance your professional network will be the source of that next touchpoint.

Majority of the companies today find their highest quality hires come on the recommendations of their current workforce.

Today companies want to bring in the best and brightest, rockstar talent, and in many cases, employees are incentivized for referring new hires. So, look around and apply the broadest possible lens to the connections you have at the company.

Do you know someone who knows someone? Let鈥檚 say you want to apply in Google?

Go to the company page and click on it鈥檚 employees.

Do you see a manager or an executive comment on some post or article you once read, or did you read a particularly eye-catching blog post?

Anything that gives you a reason to connect is great! Comment on that post or article and send them a connection request. Now they are most likely to connect with you because you are from the same industry, have the same interests or skills.

Make sure the connection is personalized in the most authentic way for getting to know the person, it should not be just about asking for a reference!

Thanks & Regards, x " r something similar.

Give them a few days after you鈥檝e displayed some knowledge in your area of expertise. You can do this in many ways. Add a post or article on the topics you are knowledgeable about, related to your line of work. Share any top news in the industry, which will interest those in your profession to read and open about discussion about it.聽

You want to learn how to build amazing conversations through discussions @Ali 馃悵 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee 聽Dr. Ali Anani is a great example to follow & learn from. He constantly shares all his wisdom, knowledge and expertise in posts and articles.聽

Ask for a reference only once you've displayed your skills to your network by sharing your experiences and success in the current or past role by sharing pictures, articles, certificate of appreciations etc

If I were to ask someone to recommend me, they would find enough information and posts on my profile to validate their recommendation!

Have two resumes a short form and a long form. "All the extras, all the other details, should be saved for your long-form resume.聽

#Tip 4

Have an Fantastic profile online

Did you know that recruiters and hiring managers do research on you before they reach out to gauge interest.

They work to find out which ones work with companies and roles they would be interested in.

They do a lot of research, before they even reach out to you, to understand what skills, experience, passion and interests a person has --and not look just at the resume matches.

The main goal is to make yourself a person of interest, a known entity.

Once a recruiter/headhunter has those data points, they are the most determined people on the planet (I鈥檓 talking about people like me LOL), and they will politely and persistently reach out until they get a response, to start a two-way conversation.

Make a list of the companies you'd want to work for, find out what 聽particular roles you'd be ideal for, and then what experience, skills, passion and interests match up with those available at the company!

Try and identify if there is a particular manager, recruiter or other person currently at the company you could get in touch with.

If you have a specific company and/or role in mind, you should look at this as a long career search journey, not a specific one-off shot at a job. This takes research and time.

聽All the best!

Lots of good advice - thank you for sharing some of the secrets Fatima!

One of the things people should consider is 鈥 having a system in place to turn things around - in other words, companies/people/recruiters seek and find people for the opportunity.

ATS is - broken - and I believe at some point, this will happen more: A company needs skilled talent? Go find them (recruit), stop posting overly specific requirements and expect to filter 鈥渨rong鈥 people out.

For job seekers, have a presence strong enough so companies and people are aware of who and what you are and do, and become - find-able - for someone's org chart.

Consider 鈥渃areer management鈥 and proactively find your next job, rather than getting laid off and having to look for another.

Companies need to expect and respect this, and take steps to retain their employees.

You can't change the rules in a game, but you can learn how to get the most out of them ;)

 

You can agree or disagree in what's happening, but if what you're doing isn't helping you to get a job, why to keep doing the same? Isn't that insane? 馃
