I was speaking with a job seeker recently and she was telling me that she had applied for hundreds of jobs and tried dozens of employment sites but got NO job interviews. I mentioned to her that the employment rate is very low at the moment and that there is a lot of demand so she might do all right if she keeps trying.

What I copped next was flurry of expletives about how the Government is making up lies and that there are no jobs available. This lady continued to bend my ear until I had to excuse myself politely.

The problem that most people have with the Job Application Process is that they’re not practiced at it. There is a method and process to follow when applying for jobs and if you approach it with desperation or you get frustrated you lose sight of how you come across to the employer.

The employer is simply following a process to find the best potential job applicant and they want to make sure they get it right. Need help in the job search and application process? That’s where the Career Academy from EzyLearn come in.

When they’re focused on finding a job most job seekers don’t realise how hard the hiring process is and what employers go through to filter candidates to arrive at a short list.

A Software Program Scans Your Resume

In many cases these days companies us an Application Tracking System that scans your resume for keywords. Unless you pass the ATS you may miss the first round of the job application process and your resume will not even be seen by an employer’s eyes. If you don’t pass the ATS, your skills, accomplishments, and work experiences may go completely unnoticed.

How your resume is structured, what you write, and even how you file your resume, are important considerations that you should perfect.

Like writing your resume and searching and applying for jobs isn’t daunting enough!

The ATS searches for keywords

Behind the ATS resume scanning is an employer who has carefully chosen specific words that they are looking for in a resume. Those key words are often written in the job ad and job description and relates to the tasks performed by the person they are looking.

If an employer is searching for a digital marketing specialist, they might choose keywords like ‘SEO’ or ‘social media’ for the ATS to pick up during resume scanning.

Your resume needs to contain enough keywords chosen by the employer to get ranked highly by the ATS for the job description. This is just one example of the things that job seekers need to know.
