Many employers use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) when it comes to their hiring practices. An ATS automatically filters out resumes that don’t fit certain criteria based on their keywords and information listed.

So, there's a good chance that a hiring manager may not even SEE your resume once it's been submitted... 😨

To help improve your #jobsearch, we have 3 free and effective ATS resume templates that you can use today! Take a look!

Having gaps in your employment is more common than one may think.

When talking about employment gaps during an interview, use this as an opportunity to discuss new skills you've learned and demonstrate how you've improved yourself in that time.

How would YOU address a gap on your resume during an interview?

If you are looking for a job and want to get hired fast, make sure you aren't making these three mistakes:

  1. Using one resume for every job. You should have a tailored resume for each position you are applying for. (You can learn more in our Getting Hired Resource Center.

  2. Applying to fake jobs. Unfortunately, there are a lot of job scams out there, make sure you know the signs of a phony job listing!

  3. Not preparing for the interview. Ask a family member or friend to conduct a mock interview with you and review some top interview questions!

What are some other common job search mistakes people should avoid?? Comment below!
