5 Resume Hacks To Pass ATS

◆ Use Relevant Keywords
ATS algorithms scan resumes for keywords mentioned in the job description. Ensure your resume includes specific terms and phrases that align with the job you’re applying for.

For example, if the job description mentions “project management” and “agile methodologies,” include these phrases in your resume like “Managed a project using agile methodologies, improving efficiency by 25%.”

◆ Simple Formatting
While creativity in resume design can be tempting, ATS systems prefer simplicity. Stick to standard fonts like Arial or Times New Roman, avoid headers and footers, and use bullet points to organize your achievements.

◆ Highlight Achievements with Quantifiable Results
Instead of listing duties under each job, focus on your achievements and quantify them.
For example, “Increased sales by 20% within six months”.

◆ Include a Skills Section
A dedicated skills section can help boost your resume’s keyword density, making it more likely to be picked up by ATS. List both hard skills and soft skills, ensuring they’re relevant to the job description.

◆ Opt for Standard Job Titles
When possible, adapt your job titles to industry-standard titles that reflect your role and responsibilities more universally.

For instance, if your official title was “Chief Happiness Officer,” consider changing it to “HR Manager” if it better describes your duties and matches common industry terminology.

Implementing these resume tips can significantly increase your chances of passing through ATS filters and landing in the hands of a recruiter.
