If you are worried about this, listen to the advice here, and then add a second-page stuff with many keywords and turn the text into white and boom, you have a great resume with a second page with a list of keywords ATS will surly detect.

As someone who’s interviewed a lot of people, I’ve never needed to fire up the ol’ ATS machine. My eyes can read just fine by themselves. And I don’t know what ATS is anyway.

But how do the resumes get to you? Do the recruiters send you every resume, or do the recruiters just send you the ones that pass the ATS test?

I’ve never had a legit shop even ask for a resume. Any relevant info can be found on my LinkedIn or in my book.

An ATS (applicant tracking system) is a tool recruiters use to track applicants. They can be used to scan resumes for keywords that are relevant to the job the applicant applied for, which then assigns a score to the applicant, so that the recruiter only has to look at resumes with a high ranking.

Worry more about highlighting your relevant experience. And have every single friend you have check it for typos - or maybe just the smart ones.
