Use Keywords

The ATS uses keywords to match applicants with job descriptions, so it’s important that your résumé look attractive to the system. To be sure you look good, scour the description of the job you’re interested in and be sure that you include several keywords, in context, in your doc. Use JobScan.co to easily see how your résumé matches up with the desired job and easily make changes to boost your rating.
