ATS Scams and Other Deceitful Marketing Practices

ATS Scams and Other Deceitful Marketing PracticesA great reason to seek advice from career pros affiliated with two or more major industry associations is to minimize your risk of falling prey to online job scams, ATS scams (ATS: Applicant Tracking Systems), fake job postings, and bad advice.

Bad advice can mislead and shake your confidence. The other traps can steal your identity, waste your time, take your money, AND mislead and shake your confidence.

Here are just a few of the scams floating around on the internet today. Please be aware many of them look very legit.

I never recommend engaging with companies claiming to check your resume against ‘ATS Checkers’ since it is not always immediately apparent which ones are legit and which ones are not. If you have built your resume or LinkedIn profile to the roles you want, your documents will automatically include the keywords and phrases that are needed for such software and it will honestly and ethically match up with your skills. Furthermore, if you use a certified resume writer, please note that most all of the certifications require training and understanding of how to provide clients with an ATS-friendly resume version formatted in plain text without graphics or tables – before a resume writing certification can be granted.

Executives, please use care when seeking advice with your career transition. When you are vetting

resume writers, please look for memberships, certifications and awards from the following associations:
