The truth about ATS (Applicant Tracking System)

If you are applying for jobs you are likely to face an ATS (Applicant tracking system)…

There are a lot of misconceptions about what an ATS is and what it does (and a lot of people capitalizing on it) which makes your job-search & applications confusing.

Here’s a great article that explains what an ATS is, how it works, and debunks the rest of the myths:
