Welcome to Jobscan. My name is Sydney and I’m going to show you how to use the Power Edit feature in the Jobscan Match Report. This feature is available for Premium users and really speeds up the process of optimizing your resume.
The Jobscan resume scanner analyzes your resume against a job description to provide suggestions on how to optimize it for recruiters and the applicant tracking systems they use.
These checks include the top skills and keywords missing from your resume. After reviewing your report, you have two options. You can open your original resume file, edit it, then reupload and scan your updated resume to see your new Match Rate. Your second option is much simpler. As a Premium user, you can edit and update your resume directly in Jobscan using Power Edit.
Just click on the Power Edit button in the left sidebar. From here, you can update your resume and see your score increase in real time.
Just like the Match Rate Report, you’ll see the most important missing skills listed. You’ll see how many times a skill is listed in the job description and how many times it’s on your resume.
For example, the job listing I chose here mentions data analysis twice. Let’s say this person has data analysis experience, but didn’t mention it on their resume. They can now add data analysis to their skills section and describe their use of this skill in their work experience section. That increases their Match Rate because they’ve included a key skill the recruiter might search for or experience they might be looking for when they read the resume. Using Power Edit, you can make that adjustment quickly and see your score increase instantly.
Some of the most common skills have example statements you can use for your resume. These statements follow best practices for resume writing based on recruiter feedback.
You can even edit the formatting of your resume in Power Edit and you can get expert guidance on formatting changes you should make. You can adjust font size, add bullets or numbered lists, change the layout, or add sections or experience you might have left off. Any changes you make within Power Edit can be saved and exported as an application ready file. That means you can scan your resume, tailor it for a job, and export an optimized resume all in one tool. When you’re finished optimizing your resume, just click on the Download button.
