“Why use a professional resume writer?”
Professional resume writers have a better understanding of what recruiters are looking for in a resume. They know it is getting much harder to get interviews in today’s competitive job market. A professional resume writer will highlight the barriers between you and the hiring manager, and how to overcome them. The Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is the first barrier. I am sure you’ve seen Taleo and PeopleSoft when applying for jobs through the Seek website. All the big companies like BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto are using them now. These software programs have been created to filter through the thousands of resumes these companies receive every day. Did you know the ATS will eliminate around 95% of job applications? Take your time, complete ATS process accurately. You can copy and paste your resume content into the fields provided. Do not trust the software to parse your resume every time. Check carefully before submitting. Don’t give up, and you will be ahead of every person who has quit during the process. Lots of people do. You need to learn and understand how to increase your chances of being found in the ATS.
“Can your resume pass the ATS test?”
In the Taleo, the leading ATS worldwide, you must be an “ACE” candidate. What is an ACE candidate? The ACE candidate is someone who meets every minimum requirement. That’s right, someone who meets EVERY MINIMUM REQUIREMENT will rank higher than most. The ATS compares your resume with to the position description, looking for keyword matches. The better your resume is “keyword optimised” the higher you will rank in the ATS search results. You need to “keyword optimise” your resume with the keywords and keyword phrases used in the position description or the job advertisement. What does “ACE” actually mean? It is an acronym. A for Abilities, C for Competencies and E for Experience. Your abilities are your technical and non-technical skills; your competencies are your education, training, inductions, tickets and licenses, and of course your work experience. If your resume clearly demonstrates that you have ALL the relevant skills, experience and qualifications for the job requires, you are a much better chance of being an ACE candidate.
“The ATS just ATE my resume!”
If your resume fails to meet all the minimum requirements, you will not be an ACE candidate. Your resume will appear lower in the ATS search results, and below every ACE candidate that has been found. This does not mean your resume will never be found, but you odds are much lower. Optimising your resume increases your chances of being found in the ATS. Here’s the reality check! To have a real chance of getting a job interview, your resume really must be found in the top 20 search results. The ATS will return by default approximately 300 resumes that match the job description. No recruiters have time to read 300 resumes for one job. And there is your next barrier, the Recruiter. Recruitment agencies are competing for the same jobs you want, so they can earn commissions on placing you into the role. If a recruiter finds and views your resume in the ATS, you have less than 10 seconds to convince them you are a suitable candidate. A recent study by The Ladders in the US found recruiters spend on average just 6.25 seconds viewing a resume. Think you need help writing a professional resume that can convince a recruiter almost instantly?
“Help, I am not getting job interviews.”
If the recruiter likes what they are reading, you will get that a phone call for a job interview. If you can convince the recruiter that you have what they are looking for, then they will recommend you to the hiring manager for consideration. The hiring manager will review your resume and decide if they want to interview you. If your resume clearly demonstrates everything the hiring manager wants, you will get a job interview. It is necessary to maintain good relationships with recruiters, after all, it will be the recruiter who recommends you to the hiring manager. Understand they must meet the strict brief they have received from the hiring manager, in order to preserve their credibility and reputation. When you are in the room with the hiring manager, it is up to you to convince them you are the best person for their team. They know you have the relevant skills, experience and qualifications,. What they really want to know is that you are the “best fit” for their team. If you are, you will get the job!
