Resume Advice You Can Use


Unless you own an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), there would be no reason for you to know that while ATS's are intelligent, they’re not brilliant.

Here’s an example:

Bob Jones, CISSP, CISM, MBA

If this is how you introduce yourself at the top of  your resume, your presentation will look great to the human eyeball.  However, some ATS’s will not know that Jones is your last name.  

Some ATS’s will store you in the database as:

First Name: Bob
Middle Name: Jones
Last Name: CISSP, CISM, MBA

Solution: 

Bob Jones
CISSP, CISM, MBA

This is by no means exciting news but not knowing can cause your resume to be stored improperly in an ATS. 

This what I refer to as my tactical, practical advice for resume owners.
