Getting Prepared for The New Applicant Tracking System | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/01/19/job-search-radio-getting-prepared-for-the-new-applicant-tracking-system/

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses a new feature I love in applicant tracking systems that you need to be prepared for.

Summary

I want to talk with you today and give you a heads up about a new variation of the applicant tracking system that you need to be prepared for. I was pretty interviewing a guest for my podcast and heals a service that attaches to the typical applicant tracking system. Here's what it does:

The employer provides questions for you to answer at the time of application and records it by video. Thus, you now need to be dressed for video at the time you apply. Why am I saying this? The service level let you go back if you don't complete the application. You are done. You are finished.

When you are applying now on applicant tracking systems, unless you know in advance that they are a video service, or they are going to ask with video of you answering questions, you now need to be dressed to apply for job in case this occurs.

There are different versions of the system. His is one that gives you 30 seconds to think of your answer before you apply. It's not just simply that your giving an answer to a question. They may never see it. Here's why.

They use big data analytics as part of their system and they are looking for how your answer matches up with the answers of people at their firm will ready that are successful in the job. Get that? They are using big data analytics, "listening" to your answer for words that you use and patterns of those words in your answers to determine whether or not your answer is similar to an answer of people within their firm will already. And, obviously, you want to have a picture of you without a shirt on? Or T-shirt that you sleep in as part of your answer?

What I'm encouraging you to do is to have a different mindset when you are applying for a job just because you never know whether or not a video is going to be taken. You never know whether this service is going to give you the 30 seconds or dive in and immediately answer their questions. You now need to be mentally prepared for an interview when you are using applicant tracking systems. Like I said, these services now attached to the old existing ones.

You need to now be mentally prepared to do Q&A for a video interview right then and there. When you are applying for something online. It also explains why I discourage job hunters from applying for jobs to applicant tracking systems. You will always be better off networking away to a hiring manager then going in the front door using the systems. As good as some of these new tools are, they are not perfect. Admittedly, employers and hiring managers are not perfect either, but who would you rather be talking to? Big brother or the actual manager?

ATS: How Do I Personalize My Resume for Multiple Positions at the Same Company? | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook:
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

A great question from a coaching client that affects many of you!

Summary

Today's question or this question comes from someone that I coach, and it's a wonderful question no one's ever posed to me before. It's easy when you're applying for a job and you're sending one resume to one company. But what about if there are several positions open at the same firm and are actually qualified for them? You want to personalize the resume. What do you do?
Now, I thought about it for a minute and the answer is actually pretty simple. It involves making a longer resume. What you need to do is put everything into one resume. So, every piece of relevant information has to go into that document. But, then, from there, you want to emphasize different aspects. So, you move up information that's relevant for that particular role. Maybe you bold it; maybe you want to italicize it.
Take a look at the document. After you've done that editing to see whether it looks garish, or whether it just highlights it. And then you're able to upload it.
You also have to make sure your LinkedIn profile is congruent with what you're saying in the resume. But, fundamentally, what you're doing is expanding your resume, beefing it up. You're making it complete with more information so that, in this way, an employer can see you've done a host of different things that's going to help them find work.

No BS Hiring Advice

They Want to Apply from Their Phones | No BS Hiring Advice


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses the fact that more people are job hunting through their mobile devices and verifying that your ATS will make it easy for them to do so.

Summary

I want to talk to you as an HR professional, hiring manager, small business owner about your mobile presence. I'm not going to go through a big production about mobile today. I'll just simply say I've got another video about that.
For those of you who use applicant tracking systems for people to contact you, you need to make sure that either a your ATS or applicant tracking system is mobile friendly and/or there's a way that an applicant can submit a resume through Google Drive or Dropbox to your ATS.
Now the reason I'm bringing this up is the statistics are bearing out that, more and more ,people are applying for jobs using their mobile devices and, for them, they may be using the mobile app like one from Indeed or SimplyHired or or any of the job boards now to apply for a position.
Now, if your ad is directing them to your ATS, and they can't really submit a resume easily, you're missing out on some talent . . . and frankly, right now, I think the statistics from Indeed in the United States are more than 40% of jobs are being viewed through mobile device.
So at the end of the day, make sure you're ATS is mobile friendly, and make sure that people have the facility to upload a resume through Google Drive or Dropbox. If it doesn't, contact your vendor and ask them to make that an upcoming improvement to the ATS because, you know, they're all willing to do this. So, again, mobile friendly accessibility through Google Drive or Dropbox for completing an application.

Do Applicant Tracking Systems Actually Care About Descriptive Keywords | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1294 A companion podcast to “Do Firms Actually Care About Descriptive Keywords on a Resume?”

Summary

Do Applicant Tracking Systems Actually Care About Descriptive Keywords on a Resume?

My in answering this question, I want to delete the phrase, "actually care," because caring is a human emotion; these systems have no care whatsoever. Looking for keywords and in particular context is their entire reason for being.

That's what their job is. That's all that matters to them. There is very little discernment in most of the systems.

As someone are linked in group commented upon, as they turn this conversation in this direction, if the job description and the programming for the ATS says, "information technology" and you say data processing, there is a disconnect there. The system may not know that term unless it is been programmed to recognize that and you cannot make that assumption.

Applicant tracking systems are looking for a number of things. They are looking for:
1. Where in the document do you have the key terms for this job? Is it on page 4 word is likely to be 100 years old, or is it on page 1 word is likely to be more current?
2. They are trying to see where you live in relation to the job. Are you within reasonable proximity because some firms are not prepared to go through long distance job hunting.

On and on and on, an applicant tracking system is designed to narrow the field down based upon preprogrammed criteria that don't translate into caring but translate into, "Can this person get to our office and do this job? Do they have a history of dooming this job. Based upon these criteria?"

The answer to my question with regard to an applicant tracking system is, "Yes, it matters to the system and, thus, whether or not these keywords are there."

Going back to that LinkedIn group, which was a veterans group, 1 of the people who commented on the previous video called attention to the fact that he had gotten more than 100 responses on one post that he had put up for job. He knew some of the respondents had the right skills, but the resume did not get through the system because they did not use the correct terms.

If you are applying through an applicant tracking system, you always have to use the correct terms because the systems don't have much in the way of discernment programmed in.

You have to understand, they are not looking for gray. They are looking for , (black or white. Whether or not you have the experience or you don't. If you don't, or you are in the wrong geography (buzzer sound). If you do, you make it through the funnel.

Better Than Applying Through The ATS | JobSearchTV.com


A viewer, Filip Konroy, ffered some advice in a comment, after watching my video, Avoid The ATS https://youtu.be/PI_XsDtfphc.

Here I comment on, make some corrections and comments and his advice is very good, hence why I shared it.

Summary

Hi, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and I've done a bunch of videos related to applying for jobs through the applicant tracking system and, Philip, I apologize if I mispronounce the last name Koroy wrote back to me with a comment. He saw my video entitled "Avoid the Applicant Tracking System." The video's probably had a few thousand views on YouTube, but he wrote this thought to say and, by the way, I'll have a link to the video In the show notes.
“It's a shame more people haven't seen this video.” He suggests that I repost it or update it and do a video about filling out job applications.
Now, he continues by writing, I thought this was going to be useful to share with you. " Whether they use an ATS or are on paper, they're a waste of time for most jobs"(I presume he's talking about applications).
"Although better to deliver a resume to the hiring manager, well-written job descriptions will indicate in the first paragraph who the job reports to. The first thing I do is go looking for a press release with that title. Companies go to great lengths to hide the names of their employees who are only too happy to brag and boast the news releases. A press release can also give you a connection you can use in your cover letter."
"Dear. Mr. Smith,
I read in your recent press release . . . (This will separate you from the spam applications. One thing that's never talked about is the social connection in the hiring process. Work is the primary social outlet for many adults. So, hiring managers often give greater weight to a candidate meeting their social needs rather than skills. The come phrase from the phrase, "we're looking for someone who's a good fit,' which more or less means someone who will fill my social void."
"This is half of the jobs that are never advertised.
"In 85% are filled through networking--NOTE: That number's way high. It's 70% and of the 70% . . . I will get into that later--This is half of the jobs that are never advertised. I'm sorry. I'm rereading the same thing. Finally, I remind applicants that a job is a two-way street. If you encounter excessive red tape, run for the door."
"I was once interviewed by a bean counter who was livid about a three-day gap in my work history. I politely told him It was probably a three-day weekend. I stood, shook his hand, thanked him for his time and left. He's failed the interview. "
Let me kind of dissect this. As many of you know, I've always said never EVER apply for a job through the applicant tracking system. It is so hard to stand out amongst the pack of resumes and, even if you do, I have videos that talk to how to best go about doing it through an ATS, to kind of rig the ATS and defeat it.
So, the suggestion about looking for the hiring manager through press releases is a good one. And you can use Google in order to do this and LinkedIn, of course is a great resource. You can search by company and title and get to the individual who would be that person. Once you have that name, you can circle back to Google. Look for the press releases. That's probably the tactic he used.
Now in terms of fit, he says 85% of positions are filled through networking. I know the statistic is 70% of positions are filled through networking and, of the 70%, 70% of them (or 49 percent) are filled because the person you know, knows someone who you don't.
Lastly, I find it's rude to walk out on people. You can just mentally reject them. You always want to create a great impression because this bean counter may have been having a bad day, just like you do. This bean counter looked at this– – I agree. This person was an imbecile. But you never know where they show up years later and looking across the table, it reminds me of a classic episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" where Larry David is yelling at some person who is giving him a hard time on the road only to discover this is the person that he's meeting with for his next appointment.
So, I remind you the world changes. You change. They change. It's a small world and you never know when you'll run into someone or someone who they know who knows you or is interviewing you and winds up giving you a bad referral.
So, I hope you found this helpful. I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. If you're interested in my coaching you, I want to remind you that you connect with me on LinkedIn at linkedin.com/in/TheBigGameHunter. Mention that you saw the video. I just like knowing that I am helpful to folks. Once we're connected, send me a message. Let me know that you are interested in one on one coaching. I look forward to helping you.
Lastly, I have classes on Skillshare. Even if you're not a member of Skillshare, there are opportunities for you to take my classes. If you become a member, use the link in the show notes because it will make it a lot easier for you. They'll give you two free months as part of your membership versus the one month they open the site. So, it's Skillshare, search for me by name. I have a bunch of classes up there and more to come.
Hope you have a great day. Take care.
