World at Work Podcast Episode 10 How to Defeat the Applicant Tracking SystemWhether you’ve never heard the term ATS (applicant tracking system), or you have and are tired of the uphill battle, this episode will teach you the do’s and don’t so that your application gets identified as one that matches what the hiring company is looking for.

Episode Highlights

  • How the ATS benefits you as the applicant
  • The advantage of using a word cloud (here’s the link mentioned in the episode) https://www.jasondavies.com/wordcloud/
  • Which Microsoft Word format gives you the advantage when you’re uploading your resume


“ATS’s  were set up innocently enough, but they definitely have the ability to single out people based on the wrong choice of word.”

“Keep applying while using keywords;  it’s not a silver bullet but it improves your chances.”
