Nowadays, applying for a job usually means that resume screening software stands between your client and a job interview. Jobscan allows you to optimize resume keywords to help get past resume scanners. The tool analyzes a resume and tells if the applicant is a good match for the job they are applying for. I gave the process a try, and it involves two steps.
- Step 1: Copy and paste your resume into the resume section.
- Step 2: Copy and paste the job description into the job description section
Next, just hit the “Scan” button, and it will generate your results. If the client does not want to make their resume searchable by recruiters, there is a box to uncheck below the Scan button. You’ll then get results, based on a word scan, of what additional wording may need to be added. A free and very helpful tool!
