How to beat ATS for company applications?
ATS - applicant tracking system.
I have applied to many companies (without referrals), with different formats (.docx, .PDF).
Note: Resume is single column, but has few invisible table like frames for keeping the text in a segregated sections and good shape.
My process: I find jobs with JD with which my skills and experience matches, then I slightly modify some keywords on resume, and then apply.
In 99% cases, I have either got rejected or no response at all. Although from my perspective, I believe I have everything they need on my resume ( as per JD), If only a recruiter reads it and gives me a call.
Is there a way to get past ATS system? Is there some hack? Is my resume format an issue?
My response to question for requirement of H1B sponsorship in future is always - YES. Cz I need it in future. Is that also the reason for rejection/ no responses ?
I am seeking roles in Data science/Analytics.
