The first person to read your resume will not be a person. An Applicant Tracking system (ATS) Program must select you before a human will ever read your resume. If you have submitted ten resumes and have not been contacted for an interview, your resume is not matching the job descriptions of the positions for which you are applying. Resume Mapper solves that problem for you by making sure your resume and cover letter map to each job description. Using Resume Mapper you can update your resume and cover letter to match each job application in minutes instead of hours or days.

The first person to read your resume will not be a person. It will be an ATS software program.
If the ATS program rejects your resume, it will NEVER be read by a real person.
With the very large pool of talent available Hiring Managers and Human Resource Managers are under tremendous pressure to hire only those candidates that meet very specific criteria. To hire someone that does not have the specific skills required to perform at a high level puts their jobs in jeopardy.
Hiring Managers cannot afford to hire someone that lacks the required skills, qualifications, and experience when there are so many applicants available. Increasingly, human resource departments have come to rely on automated applicant screening tools to select the most qualified candidates.
The Resume Mapper application enables you to map the contents of a resume and cover letter to the requirements of a Job Description. Ensuring that your resume will be recognized by the resume screening software used by human resource department personnel and hiring managers to pick the candidates that will be considered for advertised position openings.
The Resume Mapper application user interface provides you with easy access to the features and functions of this powerful tool that enables you to create resumes and cover letters that match the requirements of an advertised job description in a minimum amount of time. By using this tool you will be able to dramatically increase the number of jobs that you apply for and also dramatically decrease the time you spend updating your resume for each job you apply for. By making sure that the information in your resume and cover letters map to each job description, you will dramatically increase the number of responses and interview requests you receive.
The primary window of the Resume Mapper application contains five tabs.
Job Description Tab
