Increased ATS Job Match & Response Rates

We conducted in-depth analysis to measure the effectiveness of each strategy we put into resume writing by surveying a group of clients over a period of time. A common problem among job seekers is not getting enough responses to their resumes, and we have discovered a process that creates a solution.

ATS Job Match Rate


ATS Job Match Rate is the score your resume receives when it is scanned through an applicant tracking system (ATS) and compared to a specific job description. Unlike resume response rate, which is dependent on several different factors, a candidate's job match rate depends only on how relevant their information is to the targeted job description within the recruiting software. After a resume is scanned, it either gets filtered out automatically or scores high enough to move to the next stage of the screening process - human review. To ensure this happens, we utilize the same technology as Fortune 500 companies to scan our clients' resumes after they are written - which has significantly boosted both job match and response rates across the board.

Resume Response Rate


As part of our case study to measure how certain methods of resume writing affect the rate at which employers respond to job candidates, we conducted a survey to ask our clients what they felt impacted their results the most. Although we were confident the feedback would be positive, we really didn't expect such a tremendous amount of insight given the robust competition in the job market. Out of all the clients we surveyed, every single one of them reported obtaining better results after using our resume services. Some reported receiving double or even triple the amount of interview offers than before. This is a huge success, seeing that over 70% of resumes are rejected before they even make it past the initial screening process in applicant tracking systems. Below are the areas of improvement, which our clients felt mainly contributed to the increase in responses they have received.

Better Verbiage

33% say articulate wording and condensed content portrayed a higher level of fluency and made their resumes easier to read.

Industry Targeting

31% say industry-specific keyword optimization helped boost their exposure in applicant tracking systems (ATS) and online job sites.

Correct Formatting

36% say properly formatting and organizing information improved the way their skills were perceived by recruiters and hiring managers.

All Improvements

According to the data, all factors are almost equal in importance and can increase your response rate by 100% or more when combined.
