see our top tips to create a strong resume.
If we’ve learnt anything while working from home in the COVID-19 lockdown, it’s that the intersection of technology and our working lives has never been more crucial. If you’ve spent the last couple of months trying to find work, this reality is even more apparent. Not only is a good portion of the job hunt itself online, there seem to be warnings coming from every direction about a new type of AI ready to scan our resumes or scrutinise our skill sets.
When people worry about robots reading their resumes they’re mostly referring to Applicant Tracking Systems (or ATS), which employers use to eliminate human bias and streamline the recruitment process. Even with these benefits, it’s understandable that we’ve become a bit wary. While in reality a human hiring manager always makes the final decision, it’s a good idea to know the do’s and don’ts of writing a resume in the digital age. In the end, taking the time to do your research and optimise your resume will see you reap the benefits.
