Jobscan users have been hired by: Do’s and Don’ts Do's Use Jobscan to tailor your resume keywords to the job description. Use a resume skills section to include top skills if you’re not sure how to incorporate resume keywords. Choose common resume fonts like Cambria, Garamond, Palatino, Calibri, and Helvetica. Use the exact job title from the job description on your resume if possible. If you haven’t had the exact title, you can do this by tweaking a previous job title that had the same functions or using an introductory statement. Opt for a career summary when including an introductory statement. Include months and years in your work history (e.g. 11/2017, November 2017, Nov 2017). List accomplishments on your resume instead of only job duties. Using measurable results in percentages, time, and dollars prove your value. Use abbreviations and acronyms to account for all ATS searches [e.g., Certified Public Accountant (CPA)]. Save your resume with a professional file name. Your first name, last name, and the position works great. Check out our full list of resume tips. Don'ts Use the same generic resume for every job. Include a “References Upon Request” section. Include a headshot on your resume. Waste space on a resume objective statement. Overuse keywords in an unnatural way just to get noticed by the ATS. This is called “ resume keyword stuffing” and hiring managers are trained to notice it. Copy and paste the entire job description in white text to your resume to make it “ATS-optimized.” This is easily noticed. Add skills you don’t actually have to your resume. Rely on variations or different tenses of keywords found in the job description. Use exact matches when possible. Get too creative with design (i.e., fancy fonts, tables, formats). Submit your resume before spell-checking or having someone else review it.
