Have you ever 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 change from human eyes reviewing the initial application and computer software analysing the application has changed the way successful applications 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 content is always being updated and attendees will receive a list of important links.


  • 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
