Optimize your resume
to get more interviews

Jobscan helps you optimize your resume for any job, highlighting the key experience and skills recruiters need to see.

Scan your resume

Many job seekers don’t get enough interviews even after applying for dozens of jobs. Why? Companies use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to search and filter resumes by keywords. The Jobscan resume scanner helps you optimize your resume keywords for each job listing so that your application gets found by recruiters.

Jobscan’s job search tools can increase your interview chances by 50%.

Each Applicant Tracking System has different methods of scanning and filtering resumes. A resume scanner will be able to detect formatting errors that make your resume hard to understand for different Applicant Tracking Systems. Jobscan’s resume scanner will give you a match rate based on top ATS including iCIMS, Recruiterbox Lever, Greenhouse and Taleo.
We generally recommend a match rate score of 80%. However, many career counselors and Jobscan users see success even with just a 65% match rate.

On the flip side, there is such a thing as an over-optimized resume. We find that an 80% is really the sweet spot between optimizing your resume without overstuffing it with keywords.
Each system offers a different combination and scope of features, but ATS are primarily used to help hiring companies collect, organize, and filter applicants. That means that an ATS will scan your resume and search for certain keywords, skills, job titles, and education that the recruiter is looking for.

Job seekers who submit their resume and job application through an online form are interacting with an ATS.
Our tests have shown that some applicant tracking systems more accurately parse .docx resumes. For this reason, we recommend uploading your resume in the .docx (Microsoft Word) format when applying to a job, unless the job posting requests a PDF.
A resume checker will scan your resume and compare it to a job description. The checker will show you if your resume is optimized for an ATS and for the job listing. To ensure that the resume is optimized for an ATS, the resume checker will check the formatting and file type . It will compare the text in the resume to see if it matches the skills, keywords, job titles, and education requirements mentioned in the job listing.
Here are some quick tips on how to beat applicant tracking systems:
  • Tailor your resume to the specific job you are applying for.
  • Match your resume keywords to skills found in the job description.
  • Use long-form and acronym versions of keywords.
  • Use Chronological or Hybrid resume format.
  • Don’t use tables, columns, or graphics.
  • Use a screen-friendly, traditional font.
  • Don’t use headers or footers.
  • Use standard resume section headings.
  • Save Your File as a .docx if possible

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a human resources software that acts as a database for job applicants. ATS are used by companies of all sizes to organize, search, and communicate with large groups of applicants. Ninety-nine percent of Fortune 500 companies use an ATS as part of their recruiting strategy.
With the limitations and drawbacks of the ATS, there is a risk that you can be filtered out if your resume is not written and formatted with the ATS in mind. To increase your chances of getting past the ATS and getting your resume read by a real person, you need to optimize your resume and make sure that it is compatible with the ATS.
Jobscan's resume scanner analyzes your resume against proven recruiter preferences and hidden requirements buried in the job description. It compares hard skills, soft skills, and industry buzzwords from the job listing to your resume.

When your resume is scanned, you're given a match rate. Your match rate is based on these four priorities, in order:
  • Hard skills
  • Education level (only when an advanced degree is included in the job description)
  • Job title
  • Soft skills
  • Other keywords
Resume word count and measurable results are not factored into the match rate.
