Online job postings make hiring processes extremely efficient for employers and candidates alike. Businesses use artificial intelligence (AI) based software not only to streamline the resume review process, but also to reduce bias. AI-powered Application Tracking Systems (ATS) help hiring managers narrow down applicant pools quickly, allowing them to focus more time on meaningful tasks and relationship building.
With 98% of Fortune 500 companies and 50% of mid-sized organizations using ATS, it’s crucial to understand how to get approved by AI technology. The systems aren’t perfect, and even a few seemingly minor errors could disqualify you before a human gets the chance to see your application. Writing an AI-friendly resume is more important than ever before. How can you craft your resume so it beats the AI bots and impresses the people who might ultimately hire you? We outlined rules to follow and red flags to avoid so you can easily make it past the first non-human round of resume review.
