How can I ensure my CV passes the Applicant Tracking Systems?
Getting it right isn’t straightforward. For example, did you know that most systems struggle to extract text that’s put in Word tables?
The software needs to identify and extract your personal details, employers, job titles, dates of employment, qualifications, training, skills and achievements. Primarily it does this through logical layouts and templates that remain within specific industry consensus limits. Most importantly, it needs to be full of relevant, perfectly calibrated repetitions of industry keywords and phrases. An effective professional document, from graduate CVs all the way up to C-suite executive CVs, all need to correspond to these requirements, or you’ll be lost in digital oblivion, missing potentially ideal opportunities because of poor CV preparation.
