About Scannable Resumes

Like it or not, we are all caught in the loop of modern technology. Place a call to your favorite store or banking institution and you're usually dealing with voicemail and automated menus, rather than a person in the flesh.

The same is now true when you send your resume to the human resources department of major corporations and, in rapidly-increasing numbers, hiring managers at smaller companies.

Often, dozens to hundreds of individuals submit their resumes for the same job opening. Subsequently, most employers now use optical scanners with accompanying computer software that determines applicant skills and qualifications. That's so they may more quickly "weed out" individuals who don't match the job criteria.

As a result, it's essential for your modern resume to be in a format that scanners and optical character recognition (OCR) software can read. Additionally, your resume should include essential "keywords" related to the job you're seeking and the industry in which you work.

Sound daunting? It's not if you know the tricks of the trade when creating your modern resume. It's called a scannable resume.
