Yes, I agree. By level of skill, I didn't specifically mean a value score. I do the same as you, qualifying skill against basic, fair, good, & great. An ATS system won't have trouble scanning words, and that's basically all they are, glorified keyword searchers. It's why I tend to avoid going through agencies now; if they knew the technology they wouldn't be in recruitment, and a computer can never match a person for deriving context!
Yeah, that's true. I don't want to go into ATS and "best on how to apply" discussion here. It's too opinionated and probably everyone is right :p
