How to Make Your Resume ATS Friendly 1 p.m.

When a job candidate applies for a job online, most often, his or her resume is “parsed” or read by an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), a type of artificial intelligence that organizes and evaluates candidates. Learn about ATS technology and how to get your resume to rank higher within ATS software so that it will be seen by human decision-makers. Taught by Denise Raymond-DiBlasi, M.S., CWDP, SUNY Erie College Dean of Employment and Training Services.
