Cracking the Interview Using ATS Resume?

 

Selection of Resume



Job searching is indeed a hard task. Let's get real.

 

You have great CGPA in college, you did your graduation with flying colors, you made cool projects, and also earned online course certificates. And with huge expectations you are applying to that online job opening in your favorite Company, for days, weeks, and months…., and what you get is stone-cold rejection!  


You must remember that you are applying for a job along with millions of job seekers aka your competitors, for the same position, for the same Company, and with same qualifications as yours. This is the part of job seeking phase where we start questioning our abilities and toss your certificates out of the window. With no success in view, you have two options: lose all hopes in humanity or change your job hunting strategy.

And the best time to change your strategy is now!


The Initial phase of job rejection: RESUME.

Have you ever received any friend request from an unknown person, and you immediately hit 'reject'? Yes you have. We choose not to waste our time knowing anything more about an unknown person, just because we don't like his 'Profile'. Your resume is your academic profile. The recruiters are out of time for most of the time, they have meetings, deadlines, interviews, and what not. And your resume just has 5 to 7 seconds to make you visible to them. All the rest will be discarded without a second thought.

 

The pandemic has captured businesses into your mobile. The unemployment has been the reason for exodus of resources in search of better career. Loads of resume get flooded in the single company for a single job opening. Imagine analyzing thousands of resumes in a day.


The recruiters of giant techs do not have all day to screen your well-designed resume. They just toss your resume away.....not in trash......... but in ATS. 

 

ATS, What’s that?

Applicant tracking system or ATS is document screening software that analyze your resume in 2-3 seconds. This eliminates the load of applications that the recruiters are looking for and give opportunity to the best. ATS converts your well-designed resume into a text file then looks for the keywords, sections, and skills that your recruiters are looking for. To crack this phase you would have to make your resume ATS friendly.


ATS optimized resumes go to the final decision phase, the HR. Saying that you would get selected or rejected because you have ATS resume is half-truth. ATS is just filter that picks out candidates with selective skills with non-relevant ones.


Public Sectors could use the ATS that would be efficient to choose the right candidates, rather than accepting hundreds of applications from PhD holders to fill a peon’s position. Like seriously.   


Not all recruiters use ATS

There are chances that your regional recruiter expects well-structured resume that used best tools out there, including tables, graphics, fonts and all.


You do not need to strictly comply with ATS template. Your resume must fit the job requirement as much as your recruiter’s scope. Every resume must be optimized with the area you want to work. You would not require taking a minimally designed resume to the graphic design position. Moreover, local companies do not really mind reading your resume, as they do not have enough application to screen.


But bigger companies that use ATS do not require these. ATS, a software, is really not interested in the creativity. It reads text and might have problem reading fancy texts and graphics. So before applying for any position do read the requirements if the company needs ATS resume or not.


Writing a proper resume increases your chance of getting hired. ATS or not, it all depends on the position and company you are applying for. After all, your resume must reflect your merit, excellence, capability, and the true YOU.

Learning English Is Essential For A Child's Success. Read This To Find Out Why

              “Communication works for those who work at it”

                            -John Powell


Children are great at learning languages, they learn a language quickly and gain fluency in a matter of years but at what age should they start learning English? 
 

There is no age bar for learning but the children need to start learning English as early as possible. Over 840 million people speak English as a first or second language, which makes it the second most-spoken language. It is considered to be the language of success. To be very honest, if someone wants a decent job anywhere in the world, he/she needs to be proficient in this language.
Children have a higher grasping power as compared to an adult. Developing a habit of speaking, writing, listening, and reading should be inculcated in a child from the very beginning.

Let’s look at the advantages of being a young learner and how parents can help their children to learn, grow and succeed.

                

Learn and Lead 

 

Being able to communicate in English is one of the most important life skills. Communication skills take a lifetime to master, if not mastered at an early age. According to a 2018 survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employees, communication skills are ranked first among ‘must have’ skills. The most important aim should be to ignite young minds and unleash the dormant energy by providing an opportunity for children to learn to communicate effectively in English. It is the duty of the parents and teachers to help broaden a child's perspective, think critically, speak fluently, participate in public speaking and tap their leadership potential.

 

Invest time in learning  

Communication skills would make them stand strong on their feet.

Poor Communication has been considered as one of the greatest barriers to confidence. If a child has not developed the skill of speaking, he might lose the confidence to take his place among others.

Communicating daily will help to sharpen their skill.


 How is the current situation beneficial for students?


 In current situations, schools are closed and students are not able to participate in co-curricular activities, thus considering the situation it is the best time to grab the opportunity and master the skill of communicating in English. Every child deserves to learn and we as an older generation should give them the right opportunity and platform.

In today's world, let’s make sure that our younger generation does not have to face any hesitation. 

We must ensure that children develop skills that classrooms can’t teach. A personalized curriculum should be developed which caters to the need of the students. Thus, making them learn in a more conceptualized way.

Let them learn and lead the world

 

Beneficial for higher studies 

 

                                                                           

Like job applications, one of the best benefits of learning English is an educational opportunity. If you wish your child should access the best colleges like Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge, or any college, knowing English provides them an incredible edge. Writing SOP’s (Statement of Purpose) is not an easy task; therefore, writing English is very important for the students. Thus, it will ensure them to get the best education in the future. If your child wishes to study abroad or within India itself, learning English is one of the most important factors which should be kept in mind.

Learn, grow and communicate.

 

Develop the habit of writing 

 
Who knows your child might be the next Shakespeare?

One of the best ways to understand a language is to write. The more your child writes the more exposure he receives. This eventually increases their creativity.

Schools must provide the students with exposure to writing and make them understand the essence of writing. Students should start learning with simple words that later on turn into more complex and afterward the students must learn descriptive words needed to become creative writers. Much like becoming a musician, one might not understand his/her instrument until they try it out. The same goes for English. It requires consistent practice.

Start learning today, see the benefits soon.

 

Improve focus


To correctly become a well-rounded English speaker requires focus and determination. A child must develop such a thought process that helps her to remain focused and dedicated. Educators should give personal attention to students. During the course, students need to focus on the four core pillars of learning -:

 



                                                      

       SPEAKING 
         
    READING
        
 WRITING

 LISTENING

 Thus, this will provide them amazing exposure and some invaluable experience of learning.

Children are the terra firma upon which the future is built. The impact of learning will bring out their individuality. They deserve to know the world, let’s not keep them confined.

Let’s nurture their leadership qualities because we can foresee a nation run by them.  

                                               Students today are leaders tomorrow
