So I have started putting my (LaTeX generated, classic thesis .cls file) resume out there in job applications and this one question has been bugging me. Are Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) able to read LaTeX generated resumes well? This question is inspired by this post on reddit.
From my understanding, ATS systems can be used to auto detect keywords in resumes that determine if the applicant makes it to later stages in the hiring process. However, when I upload my resume, the auto-complete feature (where the company's system extracts text from my resume to autofill the application) always does a terrible job of extracting the information. It makes me wonder if these systems have a hard time reading LaTeX generated resumes. Does anyone have experience with this?
