The danger of getting rejected by an Applicant Tracking System is NOT about your keywords, it’s your formatting!!
If the ATS cannot parse your resume correctly (i.e. find your contact information and place it into the appropriate fields), then those fields are left blank and seen as errors by the ATS. When the ATS purges all the errors, the employer loses the option to call you!
Keywords are just skills. If you apply to a Java Developer position and you don’t list Java on your resume, that’s a skills problem, not an ATS problem. However, if DO include Java on your resume and you are still not getting calls, you could have a formatting problem.
