Why I Use an ATS Scanning Service
I’ve been writing resumes for 20+ years.
There’s so much that goes into getting, distilling and showcasing your accomplishments on a piece of paper.
Like the following questions:
How many pages?
What to include? What to exclude?
What about colors? Which font's best?
It’s why my favorite answer to most resume questions is, “it depends”!
However, there are some things most would agree.
Recruiters want proof.
We’re not talking duties and responsibilities. We’re talking results.
Why? Results help the reader infer what you can offer them.
So we don’t leave it to chance.
Wait. What’s an ATS?
It stands for Applicant Tracking System.
And It is often what stands between you and that dream job...
Over 90% of resumes are discarded before they reach a hiring manager or a recruiter!
Why Resume Worded?
I chose Resume Worded for many reasons:
1. More than keywords:
The CEO leveraged his computer science degree to use AI (Artificial Intelligence)
for the tool which, he says, “parses, analyzes and scores it based on 100+ attributes."
It then generates a detailed report with human-like feedback and presents it to the user.
Take a look!...
2. Fancy isn’t best:
“Most resume-related products out there are focused on only the visual elements of resumes (i.e. templates)
and don’t address the problem that what people struggle with is the actual content and wording of their resumes.
Even if English is your native language, it’s hard to write impactful yet concise bullet points to describe your achievements.
3. Nothing beats examples:
Per the CEO, “Most people, including me, work best with examples.
We end up asking our friends for examples of their resumes, which give us great ideas on what sentences work and how to word them.
This gave me the initial idea of the first version of Resume Worded.”
4. Resume content builder:
“Let’s face it. A good resume template is not going to get you a job.
Instead, your achievements on your resume will. Recruiters are substance over style kind of people.
What they really care about are your bullet points.”
5. Each line must be concise, show you have the right experience, and demonstrate your impact:
“There are hundreds of resume builders out there.
None of them are focused on helping you write effective resume content that will land you an interview.
That’s where our bullet point builder comes in.”
6. Open to feedback:
I've reached out to CEOs of other ATS scanning tools. I was ghosted like a recruiter!
Not what you want for a job service.
This CEO not only listens to feedback, but acts on it.
7. Not just resumes:
In addition to the classic Score my resume,
they match it to jobs with a Targeted resume scan...
This helps you tailor to each job, which is a must!
They even offer a LinkedIn Scan, a LinkedIn Headline Generator with examples, and a LinkedIn Summary Generator...
Then come back for a pro scan and maybe even 1 hour of coaching!
Once you've tried the free version, I'm glad to scan your résumé with the full professional version for a more in depth review...
