How to Get Your Resume Past Application Tracking Software
What do you mean, you don’t know what an
Application Tracking System is?
Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone. Most Job Seekers out there actually have no clue what happens to their Resume or CV after they have hit the send button.
Have you heard this one before? Don’t tell me how to suck eggs!
If you live in Australia, then I’m sure you’ve heard it and maybe even experienced it first-hand.
Employees, work mates, peers or friends who tell you that, are really saying they don’t care for your advice.
But, they would like you to help or they wouldn’t have asked in the first place!
They usually have a valid point, since advice is often not delivered properly.

I would like to introduce you to four tools out of my JobSeeker toolkit which you should use wisely and only when you need them. I don’t want to promote gadget time. That is far from what I do here in this blog. Use these apps when you need them and ensure to set up your settings in a manner that you are not constantly fiddling with your tools.
These four tools can help you to manage your digital life or collate information for your next job interview or client meeting. Oh, and if you think you have a better tool, let us know about it! I’ll test and re-post your gadget or app if it will help my Blog’s audience. Read more
