Resumix ResumeGone are the days of Federal Resumix systems, but it looks like ATS (Automated Tracking Systems) are here to stay. Resumix systems are a lot like ATS, where your resume is entered into a system and scored/rated by keywords, skills, and descriptions to support keywords and skills, timelines of experience, education, and many more factors.
Many large Fortune 1000, 500, and even smaller companies use some type of Resumix system or ATS to screen the hundreds and thousands of resumes received each week for specific positions.
Are these systems fair? Well, yes and no. They are fair because they are searching for and weeding out the experience, skill level, and education advertised in a vacancy announcement or job posting. However, they can also seem unfair, because those who know how to master the keywords and supporting information have a leg up on those who do not.
Our writers are trained in both Resumix system and ATS resume development. The bottom line with any job to which you apply is that you actually possess the required experience, skills, and education, because getting past the “gatekeeper” of the Resumix/ATS is only the beginning of the battle. You will be interviewed by telephone and in person and will be asked very specific questions that must prove the depth and provide examples of your experience.
So even if you know how to manipulate these systems, it’s just not an honorable practice, because the truth will become known.
However, if you DO possess the experience, skills, and education, then by all means, hire the experts who can navigate these systems and land you the all-important interview.
