Of course, each employer may have a different approach, but the idea is basically the same – employers or software systems toss out resumes that don't seem to have the right skills, education or experience and do further assessments of resumes that do.
That's why it's so important that you craft your resume to fit the job opening. Employers only spend seconds scanning a resume, and those job seekers that don't highlight the right skills or qualifications get eliminated. It's also why you must include the right keywords so that you don't get rejected by an applicant tracking system (ATS) that is looking for specific terms like "team player" or "project management."
If you're unsure about how to submit a resume that won't get tossed by a hiring team or an ATS, consider putting LiveCareer's Resume Builder or Resume Templates to work.
