The job search market has changed dramatically over the past 10 years, driven by technological transformations that have shifted the process online, and transformed it from local to global.
To manage the exponential influx of hundreds of candidates applying for any given job online, recruiters have automated the process using the ATS Applicant Tracking System, or what I call a Resume Reading Robot, which rejects 75% of all online applications - before a human being sets eyes on them.
Then a recruiter spends just 7.7 seconds quickly scanning and rejecting another 10 - 15% of online applications to get down to a manageable number which can then be reviewed and evaluated for their merits by the HR recruiter.
Unless you know how to navigate this brave new world of digital recruiting, you don't stand a chance of your resume being found and reviewed - which is the first step in landing a job interview.
It's both an art and a science, and one that has to be studied and learned. I am your guide in your journey to navigate the job market to find and land your dream job - at any age or career stage.
