What you don’t know is hurting your search

The extra effort you put into styling and formatting your résumé might actually hurt you…and you probably don’t even know it.

If you’ve submitted your highly-designed résumé hundreds of times with nothing but radio silence from employers, you probably want to know: “What gives?”

Here’s what’s happening:

  • Most widely-used Applicant Tracking Systems [ATS] are based on technology developed over a decade ago.
  • They’re not smart enough to differentiate between more standard fonts like Times New Roman or Arial and the more stylized custom fonts of today.
  • They don’t “read” images, pictures or graphics very well, much less give you credit for being creative. They log them as errors and any text over top of them often gets missed.
  • They can’t “see” formatting that separates things like dates of service from position descriptions when they’re formatted in multiple columns.

In short, the more creative you are with how your résumé looks, the worse it is for you.

In many cases, your résumé doesn’t even get seen by humans in the HR department. That’s a waste of your time and efforts.
