With so many companies using Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to filter resumes, it's important to format your resume in a way that will help it get through the system.

Thread 🧵
1) Use a simple and clean format.

Avoid using graphics, images, or unusual fonts that might confuse the system or cause it to reject your resume.
