What you can expect
Frustrated because you feel that your resume is getting lost in the online application shuffle?
You’re not alone!
Jobscan was born as a result of a job seeker’s frustration. When James Hu found himself on the job hunt in 2013, he discovered that the powerful portals companies were using for hiring were simply parsing, ranking, and filtering resumes with an algorithm based on keywords. Knowing that he’d have to carefully tailor his resume for each application in order to be noticed, he built Jobscan from scratch to automate the process.
Now Jobscan is not just helping one job seeker, but hundreds of thousands worldwide by giving them the power of large applicant tracking systems before they apply to their dream jobs.
Jobscan is still young but growing rapidly in their hometown of Seattle. Based in Pioneer Square, you can catch the team grabbing lunch in the park, having happy hour at one of many microbreweries, or soaking up some rare Seattle sun... always with laptops in tow.
WHY RESUME OPTIMIZATION MATTERS
The more effectively you can tailor your resume for a specific job, the better your chances are. Generic resumes are a dime a dozen and unlikely to do well in an applicant tracking system (also known as an ATS). Using Jobscan, you can easily optimize your resume against any job description and make yourself a top candidate.
Jobscan is a tool that gives job seekers an instant analysis of how well their resume is tailored for a particular job and how it can be even better optimized for an ATS.
Just visit Jobscan and either paste in the text of your resume or upload a Word or PDF file, then paste the text of the job posting you’re interested in.
