Take note, over 70 percent of resumes actually never get into the hands of the employer because of the applicant tracking system.  What can you do as a job candidate, in order to have your resume break through the applicant tracking system?  Well, Robin from Robins Resumes shows us exactly what we need to do in order to increase the chances of our resume making it through the applicant tracking system.
