  • Your resume must be prepared in a proper format to get through the automated HR/ATS systems along with compelling content and the appropriate keywords that will engage your audience and accurately reflect your brand to entice a hiring manager or recruiter to contact you.
  • It’s important to include enough information about your expertise without sharing everything you have done throughout your entire career.
  • It’s critical with the automated systems that you customize your resume to job descriptions to showcase how you align with their role.
