An ATS (applicant tracking system) is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs. An ATS can be used to post job openings on a company website or job board, screen resumes, and enable candidates to apply for jobs online. ATS systems are designed to help organizations efficiently manage the recruitment process, including the storage and tracking of resumes and the communication with candidates.

In the context of a CV (curriculum vitae), an ATS-friendly CV is a resume that is optimized for use with an ATS. This means that the layout and format of the CV are designed to be easily parsed and understood by the ATS, so that the CV can be properly stored and tracked in the system. An ATS-friendly CV typically includes clear headings, bullet points, and easy-to-read formatting to make it easy for the ATS to extract key information. It may also include certain keywords and phrases that are relevant to the job posting, as these can help the ATS identify the candidate as a good fit for the position.
