Understand How Online Applications And Recruitment Databases Are Screening Out Your Job Seekers' Resumes
Friday 6 April 2018 | 2:00pm AEST (1:30pm SA & NT and 12noon WA)
Designed for Business Development staff, Managers/team leaders, Employment Consultants and frontline staff
Have you every pulled together a great job application, flicked it off, waited, waited and waited, and received no reply ? These days many organisations use HR Software to screen out your documents based on formatting, lack of key words and other things that you may not be aware of.
This topic is particularly relevant to those consultants who are assisting job seekers with online applications. The shift from human eyes to computer software analysing applications has changed the way successful resumes are formatted. This webinar will provide an understanding of those changes and how they are impacting on your job seekers’ success. It will make you look at your resume templates in a whole new light.
Please note that the session has been updated recently and attendees will now receive a page of important links.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
- An understanding of how online applications are processed by screening software – essential to know so your clients aren’t screened out on the first pass
- The importance of key words in your job seeker’s application – and matching these to the advertisement or industry that they are applying for
- Formatting and making things pretty – why this doesn’t work with online applications
- Keeping it simple – how irrelevant or complex information on your online resume or application can be hurting your client’s chances of ending up on the ‘yes’ list
