What is Resume Upload?
It is easier than ever for job seekers to get the most out of our platform thanks to our newest feature – Resume Upload. Starting now, users will be able to upload their resume (in Word Doc or PDF format) directly into the portal, which means they can use our instant resume analysis tool SmartTracker right away.
What makes Resume Upload even better is that our portal will automatically convert your document into one of our existing templates, allowing you to edit it directly inside the portal.
Why are we so excited about it?
Up until now, if you had an existing resume, and wanted to use our SmartTracker technology, you had to copy and paste all the content into our Resume Builder.
Not a great use of time, or a great experience on the platform.
By adding Resume Upload, we are dramatically cutting down the time it takes for you to get up and running on the CareerJSM platform. Within minutes, the content of your resume will be available in the portal and can be used to immediately compare your qualifications with job postings on any major hiring resource.
Resumes uploaded into the portal can also be edited directly in the portal, which will help you tailor the content to match job postings. You can read more about our 5 Essential Resume Tips here.
How does it work?
The resume upload uses parsing technology, which simply means our platform can read the content of your uploaded document and sort it into categories. In this case, the technology is sorting your resume content into our Resume Builder sections – Contact Information, Summary, Work Experience, and Education.
Parsing is the same technology used by Applicant Tracking Systems, which are used by over 90% of Fortune 500 companies in sorting candidate applications. More information on Applicant Tracking Systems here.
While not always perfect, parsing technology reliably reads documents with up to 95% accuracy.
In a case where the uploader does not import content exactly right, users can easily navigate through our Resume Builder’s editing tools to make the needed fixes.
When building this feature, we compared a half dozen industry leading resume parsing software providers, and integrated the one who provided the most reliably accurate results into the portal.
