Why Applicant Tracking Software is Limiting Your Job Prospects

Do you have the credentials, certificates, and experience to level up your food and beverage manufacturing career yet constantly face automated rejection letters? Something is not adding up. Did you know that most food and beverage hiring managers and job boards use ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems) to filter candidate resumes, which oftentimes filter out great job candidates in favour of less qualified job candidates simply because of how your job profile is formatted? 

Applicant Tracking Software tools are used by food and beverage manufacturing  job boards and hiring managers to easily sift through large amounts of resumes, matching your resume to the job description.  

The challenge is if you don’t follow the formatting correctly, you could be sifted right out of the running, even if you are qualified. 

Not convinced? 

Let’s look at some stats: 

And this is where QTalent comes in. We have compiled useful resources on our blog to ensure your resume gets through the ATS systems. And have custom-built the first talent acquisition platform for food and beverage manufacturing professionals that goes beyond traditional job boards. 

5 Ways QTalent is Better than job boards

QTalent takes the guesswork out of ATS! Our sophisticated platform lets you upload your resume and create an ATS-approved profile automatically. Plus, all the benefits are below: 

  1. QTalent is the first talent acquisition platform that matches you to the right company, not only the right job position. Our platform can help you discover career opportunities you may have previously overlooked by matching you to food and beverage manufacturing companies that align with your corporate values, culture, and fit. Even if a company doesn't have any current openings, you can still apply and get in their talent pipeline for future hires.
  2. QTalent lets you create a custom profile that allows food and beverage hiring managers better to understand your experience and credentials beyond ATS-stuffed keywords. 
  3. QTalent lets you search companies by company benefits rather than just compensation. Robust company profiles allow you to see health, childcare, and paid study leave. This helps ensure the job position you are applying for best meets your lifestyle. 
  4. QTalent lets you search for a job by commuting rather than just location. You can sort jobs by distance to find the ones that are most convenient for you, saving you miles in travelling costs. 
  5. QTalent simplifies the job application process. Our alert features allow you to alert HR managers that you’re interested in future roles as well as provide personalised job alerts so you never miss an opportunity. 

QTalent's innovative technology, combined with custom profiles, goes beyond traditional job search platforms and job boards, making sure your skills, expertise, and lifestyle requirements are best matched to the right job. 

If you want to advance your food and beverage manufacturing career, our new platform will help you find your dream job.
