Welcome to Jobscan. My name is Sydney and I’m going to show you how to use the ATS Tip feature within the Jobscan Match Report to optimize your resume.
Jobscan’s algorithm mimics the most common behaviors found in the top applicant tracking systems, or ATS, like Taleo, Greenhouse, Jobvite and others.
These ATS operate basically the same way, but after testing them, we found that they all understand resumes a little differently and have unique tools.
To take your resume optimization to the next level, use the ATS Tip feature in the Searchability section of the Match Report. All you have to do is add the company name and the URL of the job application from the company’s website. You’ll get specialized tips on how to tailor your resume based on the ATS that company uses.
In this example, we see that Zendesk uses Jobvite, so the system shows bonus tips about file types, formats, abbreviations, keyword matching, and file names based on how Jobvite operates.
Optimizing your resume for an ATS ensures that the text is understood by the system so that if a recruiter or hiring manager uses any of its filtering features, your resume stands out.
Optimize your resume for the ATS used by over 90% of Fortune 500 companies. Get started for free at Jobscan.co.
