Career Angels tracks changes on the job market. One of them is increased use of ATS.

Career Angels tracks trends & changes on the job market. One of them is the increased use of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). According to TopResume, 75% of CVs are never seen by a recruiter. Landing a job via a job ad (with ATS) has worked for 18% of our clients – experienced managers & executives! 5 years ago that number was 0%!

Having a CV that is legible by programs are crucial. That’s why we studied the most popular ATS and figured out how to “hack them”.

Is your CV ATS-friendly? Send us your CV for a free review and you’ll receive an “ATS CV Compliance Report”. Email: Bichl.Sandra@CareerAngels.eu. Subject: ATS Report
