How to Tell if Your Resume is Being Read by Bots

If you are a job seeker then you’ve surely heard about ATS, automated tracking systems. Ideally you want to bypass having your resume filtered by the machines, but first you need to determine whether you’re resume is being sent through one.

Not sure if your resume is being read by bots? Here are some clues.

The two clues that your résumé may be going into an ATS: If you’re asked to upload your résumé to apply, or if you’re asked to copy-and-paste your résumé into an online application form.

An ATS is especially likely if you’re applying to a company with 50 or more employees.
