How We Started
Have you ever applied to a job online and noticed that you’re sent to a completely different domain name after clicking “apply now”? Well that’s exactly what got Ideal Resume started.
While reviewing job openings online, Wesley Brach, founder of Ideal Resume, noticed a consistent pattern. After clicking a “apply now” button you’re oftentimes redirected to a different webpage with a completely different URL or name than the company you're applying to.
For example, you might see “Workday”, “Taleo”, “Brassring”, “Lever”, “iCims”, “Breezy HR”, “Jobvite”, or “SuccessFactors” in the URL.” If you’re not already familiar with these companies you might wonder what’s going on.
Wes was curious and began researching these names. It turned out that these were names of applicant tracking systems commonly used by many companies.
After acquiring an understanding of how applicant tracking systems work, Wes realized there was a need and opportunity to help the job seeker side of the application process. Thus Ideal Resume was started.
