Ever applied for a job you thought you were perfect for, only to never hear back? The resume black hole is real. In fact, the average job opening attracts around 250 resumes, but only about 2% of applicants will be called in for an interview.
And that’s if a human ever even sees your resume. To manage high volumes of applicants, many companies (including 98.2% of the Fortune 500) are using bots to screen out around 75% of candidates before a recruiter or hiring manager even sees their resume.
How does it work? When you apply for an open role, an applicant tracking system (ATS) scans your resume for terms that match those used in the job listing and ranks yours against everyone else’s. So even if you’re qualified for the job (or perfect for it), there’s a good chance you might be rejected, especially if you don’t optimize your resume for “robot” eyes.
