What Happens To Your Job Application? | CV Saviour

This infographic from the Wall Street Journal shows us exactly what happens after your résumé is submitted the old-school way (through a job board, the organisation’s career site, etc.) And the picture isn’t pretty…

  • Just 1 in 10 job seekers complete the application process correctly
  • Only 25% of the 100 resumes considered will make it past the Applicant Track System (ATS)
  • 4 to 6 applicants will be invited to an initial interview (usually a phone or video interview)
  • 1 to 3 applicants, out of the initial 1,000 that saw this opportunity online, are invited to a face-to-face interview

Analyse how well your resume or CV matches a job in 2 seconds.


80% of companies in Australia use Applicant Tracking Systems to search for qualified candidates from large job applicant pools.

ATS help employers by analysing resumes and CVs, identifying those whose content matches given sets of keywords, and weeding out those who don’t rank highly. But ATS hasn’t been so great for jobseekers. Until now.
