I have got a view onto the corporate ATS output and its conclusions, and it seems the system bases its conclusions on the most recent job. This means that all the candidates with no relevant experience on the last job will be disqualified at the entrance.
For the candidate not having appropriate experience for the target job on current/last job, what would be the best:
- omit current/last job completely, starting resume from the appropriate, but past experience (thus looking like currently not being employed);
- put inappropriate jobs on the list at the beginning in chronological order, but just write several (special) words about the experience;
- re-oder the experience, putting most appropriate experience at the top, and inappropriate at the bottom, thus breaking the chronology but having consistency in dates;
... anything else?
I am looking for practically tested information, not a common sense how it may be.
