Resume keeps getting rejected? Familiar with workday HRMS (human resources management system)? Understand algorithms and file complexity? This is part of why you aren’t getting interviews. You’re too complicated for the computer, so you’ll never make it to the hiring manager.
Stop over-complicating your file and understand the systems you’re up against. Many companies are transitioning to human resources management tools to help them* out – not you. So, if you don’t know the game, you won’t win the game.
Top tips for when your resume keeps getting rejected:
Resume Keeps Getting Rejected Tip #1: Stop being so complicated. The more complex your file is, the less likely the algorithm-based system is going to “digest” it
Resume Keeps Getting Rejected Tip #2: Everyone knows about keywords, and I agree, they should be part of your strategy. But a ton of keywords with a less-than-aggressive complex file will never cut it
Resume Keeps Getting Rejected Tip #13: Know where you’re applying and how the company is “digesting” applications. Are they using workday ? Taleo ? BambooHR ? How about USAJobs? (Probably the worst one of all, which is typically required for government jobs). I almost guarantee your job application is going to run through at least one of these systems, or similar. Do you understand how they work? You should.
Great experience cannot be realized to a human if the computer doesn’t digest it. Get your technical game up, and you will be in a much better position to actually land an interview. It’s sometimes difficult to consider that your roadblocks truly are just a simple result of not having the right technical acumen needed to effectively navigate the systems. I say this in confidence – it really isn’t you! Get your file right to start working more effectively to successfully navigate these highly automated systems.
