    Applicant Tracking System Resumes

    If you are applying online, most companies use computer programs or Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to pre-screen applicants before they get reviewed by a human. Create an ATS Resume based on keywords and qualifications from the job description and avoid most formatting.
