It’s hard to believe that in just a few days we will be welcoming 2024. As always, we want to express our gratitude to our clients who we have had the privilege to work with last year and look forward to helping you in the future. We are excited to continue helping people with not only their resumes, but also with their job search journey. 

We have discussed many different topics over the last 12 months, and we want to highlight some of our favourite blogs from 2023. 

Applicant Tracking Systems 

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) (Alyce can we uppercase the Letters spelling out the words Applicant Tracking System) is used by companies to help streamline the job recruitment process. ATS organizes candidates according to experience, qualifications, and specific keywords through an automated process. Applicant Tracking Systems allows for a faster and more efficient process, weeding out the competition to find the most qualified candidate.  

We dove deep into this topic this year, and one of our most read blogs featured some of the problems with the software. With over 520 ATS systems available, it is nearly impossible to know exactly which one the organization is using. Therefore, they aren’t a reliable indicator of exactly how your resume will rate through another software program. Want to explore ATS topics further? Read more here

Setting Goals 

Since we are about to bring in the new year, it is a good idea to consider what you want to achieve over the next twelve months. While some people like to make resolutions, consider setting some attainable goals for yourself instead. An excellent way to do this is to set specific intentions for success. You are likely familiar with the term SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timed), which is a helpful framework to utilize. SMART goals can be viewed as an action plan, which will help you to be as detailed as possible.
