*An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs.  The principal function of an ATS is to provide a central location and database for a company’s recruitment efforts. ATSs are built to better assist management of resumes and applicant information.

The majority of job and resume boards (LinkedIn, Monster, Hotjobs, CareerBuilder, Indeed, GlassDoor, etc) have partnerships with ATS software providers to provide parsing support and ease of data migration from one system to another.  With the advent of ATS, resume optimization techniques and online tools are now used by applicants to increase their chances of landing an interview call.
