Resume Tips – How to Get Past the Automated Applicant Tracking System

Most resumes and job applications are handled online.  I found this interesting post from the On Careers column in U.S. News that provides tips to help your resume, cover letter, and application stand out and make it through the automated system.

Here are some of the tips:

- Use keywords and phrases from the job description;
- Tailor your resume for the job and take out anything older than ten years;
- Make sure you follow all directions and use the format requested by the job posting; and
- Make sure you do not have any typos.
