Is Your CV Ready For The Robots?

“If it’s been a while since you actively hit the job market, the chances are that your CV isn’t matching up to current requirements. Is your CV being sent to the bottom of the pile before a human even sees it?”

Did you know that an estimated 90% of large companies now use applicant tracking systems (or ATS)? These are systems that enable employers to manage large volumes of job applications by scanning CVs and using keyword trackers to identify the most suitable candidates. Their use isn’t confined to big business either, with many medium-sized companies now getting in on the act.

 Therefore, your CV needs to maximise your chance of selection not only by a human recruiter but also by these automated systems.
