Are you frustrated your applications for jobs are not getting results? Do you feel invisible in the job market? Is there fierce job competition in your field?
You are not alone. You may be awesome at your profession, but communicating it in a resume may be harder than you thought.
♦ On average every corporate job opening attracts 250 applicants of which only 4 – 6 will be called in for an interview.
♦ 38% of all companies use ATS (Applicant tracking software) to screen resumes. The percentage of large companies using ATS is much higher.
