Customize Your Resume Using Keywords


Many resumes never make it into the hands of the hiring manager because they get filtered out by application software. That’s right. Applicant Tracking System/Software (or ATS, for short) is often the reason why the resume you worked so hard on didn't even get seen! So frustrating! So what can you do?

A clever way around the ATS is to customize your resume using key words from the employer’s job post and website. This strategy does involve some extra resume work, but it beats the ATS and demonstrates that you are able to speak the employer’s language, which makes it feel like you are already fluent in their team culture.


If you need help selecting the right key words to get by the ATS and get your resume into the right hands, I'd be happy to be help.

Hi, could you elaborate on that? For example, you could create a video tutorial showing it by personal example. Just try to use this for your macbook. Looking forward to your video!
