Resume Scanner helps you optimize your resume for each job. You MUST do this if you want to compete. Get Resume Scanner today and start winning!
Resume Scanner is resume scanner software that helps you match your resume to the job description. Simply paste the job description on one side and paste your resume on the other side. Press the Scan button and you'll instantly see a list of all the keywords in the job description which are not in your resume. You then add the missing keywords to your resume and scan again. The better your keywords match the job description the higher your score. If your score is higher than other people applying for the job, a human being will read it- and your chances for an interview will be vastly improved.
You really can't match your resume to the job description without resume scanner software. Try Resume Scanner for free. You'll discover things about your resume you never knew. We hear it every day. People think they have a great resume then they scan and discover they barely match the job description. Resume scanner software should be a standard part of your job application process. It's a competitive world and you need resume scanner software to compete.
You'll never apply for a job the old way again. Once you use resume scanner software you'll see this is the only way to compete.
You'll also see how the keywords are used: Keywords in Context.
With keywords in context, you'll see each keyword in the job description plus the text before and after the keyword. Don't just add the keyword to your resume, add the phrase used in the job description that includes the keyword. Matching longer phrases greatly strengthens your match and improves your ranking in employers' applicant tracking systems. This gives you a better chance for an interview.
In this example, the keyword "presentations" is used 3 times in the job description. Don't just use the one word in your resume, use the phrase your potential employer used. For example:
"perform technical presentations & demonstrations"
"provide presentations both to executive-level and working-level"
"giving sales-oriented presentations"
Or use all three. Now you're competitive!
Imagine you are the hiring manager or you're the HR manager. You post your job listing on the Internet. Thousands of people see it and the resumes come flooding in.
In the old days you'd have to read all the resumes. You'd sort the good ones from the bad, set up interviews with the good candidates and send rejection emails to the bad candidates. This was fine if you had just a few candidates, but it would take massive work if you got a large number of candidates. You could be tied up for days- nobody has time for that.
Fortunately a new category of software has emerged: the applicant tracking system (ATS). With an ATS the applicants enter their resume online by typing it into a form, uploading a doc or pulling it from LinkedIn. It's great for the hiring manager because all the candidates appear in a list and can be processed efficiently.
Most applicant tracking systems do more than that. They compare the candidates resumes with the job description and rank the candidates automatically.
The hiring manager simply reads the resumes of the top listed candidates and
sets up interviews. Instead of reading hundreds of resumes, reading the top 20 may be enough to do the job.
Because applicant tracking systems reduce the work so greatly, they have become very popular and are used by virtually all large corporations (and many smaller ones as well).
The applicant tracking system presents a real problem: you need to get near the top of the list or you won't be considered at all. You may be extremely well qualified, in fact you may be the best candidate in the world, but if your resume is not written in a way that gets you to the top of the list no one will ever know.
This is where ResumeScanner can help you. ResumeScanner identifies the skills listed in the job description and hilights the ones your resume does not mention. This allows you to add these words and phrases to your resume so it matches the job description more closely. The better the match, the higher you will appear in the ATS list. The higher you are in the list, the more likely your resume will be considered. This improves your chance of being interviewed and of getting the job you want.
Most job seekers have no idea applicant tracking systems play such an important role in the hiring process. This gives you, the informed job seeker a real opportunity to gain a competitive edge.

Until today, you've probably done what everyone else does when applying for a job. You take time to prepare your resume, you emphasize the points you feel are important and you carefully format it to look good. You then apply for lots of jobs using that same resume. Sorry, that's the wrong way to approach it!
The right way is to customize your resume to match the job description every time you apply for a job. Twenty different jobs? Then you need 20 different resumes. Here's why:
Your future employer is very possibly using software to screen the incoming resumes. This type of software, the applicant tracking system, ranks the resumes by how well they match the job description. You need a high score or your resume will never stand out. You'll be lost in the crowd.
Start an unlimited free trial and test your resume against a job you just applied for. A typical starting score is 15-20. That means your resume has 15-20 percent of the keywords found in the job description. No wonder you're not getting interviews!
Now take a little time rewriting your resume using the keywords it lists in RED. Pay particular attention to the keywords at the top that have been used more than once. Often you can bring your score up to 80 in half an hour. That's time well spent because you have shot way up the list of candidates. You have made yourself much more competitive with very little work. Now you're working smarter.
