Las Vegas is known for its beautiful lights, its amazing shows and its food… buffets to be specific.
The best part is that it’s all cooked by someone else AND it’s usually a big bang for your buck. Awesome.
We know the analogy is weird, but just go with it. Trust us, it works.
An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is a software application mainly used by Human Resource professionals and literally tracks an applicant from the moment they apply through to hiring. ATS gives businesses a central database from which to store, sort, filter, and manage resumes and applicant information.
You may have heard of job boards like Monster, Career Builder, Indeed, and Hot Jobs. These online resume marketplaces work in tandem with ATS software providers. When you upload your resume to one of these sites OR apply for a job either on the job board or through an employers online application, the software scans for certain information like schools, work history, years of service, and special skills. This is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Forbes ran this awesome article explaining the Three Pillars of SEO.
One of two things happens next. ATS either kicks your resume to a prospective employer or an employers’ ATS software scans your application looking for key words and phrases. It’s relatively quick and seamless and usually less expensive for employers. Like all trendy technology, there’s even a fun, catchy name for it: e-recruitment.
Back to the analogy. In essence, ATS is the restaurant as a whole. It knows what food is available, what’s coming down the pipeline, and what customers are craving.

Did you know that Americans use more than 90 million short tons of paper and paperboard every year? That’s an average of 700 pounds of paper products per person each year.
Think about it. Job applications are long. So long, in fact, that trending website Mashable examined this problem a couple of years ago. This dude gave up on one online application after toiling away for two hours. TWO HOURS!
Imagine if this was a paper application. It would be so big it would need an industrial-grade stapler!
