Understanding Applicant Tracking Systems with Robin Mosley-Vaughan, PhD.

Understanding Applicant Tracking Systems for Designers with Robin Mosley-Vaughan, PhD.,

Are you ready to make the leap and apply for work and where you should start the process? Have you applied to a lot of jobs and you’ve never heard back? Then this workshop is for you.

There is so much more to apply for jobs than designing your resume aesthetically. If you plan on getting your resume reviewed in front of HR and then in front of people interested in hiring you then you have to understand the rules it takes to make a traditional resume optimized for applicant tracking systems.

This workshop is all about learning what applicant tracking systems are and how they work so you can get on the right track when applying for positions at any company, especially the more popular ones.

The link to the Zoom conference will be sent out to you via email a day before the event and again at 4:30pm before the event.

This is a free event. Donations are welcome and will go to support student scholarships and ongoing programming for our creative community.
