What is ATS software?
ATS means Applicant Tracking System – it is a piece of software used by large companies (such as Fortune 500) to automatically ‘read’ large quantities of CVs and make judgements as to their suitability for a particular position. It is well known that ATS software can overlook good applicants simply because the software is unable to properly parse the CV and determine the applicant’s suitability.
We design our ATS-friendly CV templates with a view to maximising the ability for the software to parse the CV. In addition you should provide the CV in a readable format (doc / docx) and ensure you have properly implemented the correct keywords and information required from the job specification (see our guides below).
Disclaimer: There are many different variants of ATS software on the market and like every other provider of ATS-friendly templates, we cannot guarantee that every single system will be able to read our templates without issue. However, our ATS-friendly templates follow the principles of ATS-friendly design, such as not including graphics, tables, columns, text boxes or other elements that may make it difficult for the system to understand the contents of the CV.
