My resume is not designed for scanning.  What resources are available to update the language in this way?

    Hi Sheryl,

    For the most part, it is all about making sure you include keywords they may be looking for when filling any particular position.  There is a great tip sheet here for ways to optimize your resume for scanning: http://www.career.und.edu/CareerServices/ResumeKeyword.pdf.  

    Also do keep in mind that only some companies use resume scanning; it all depends on the type of industry you are applying for jobs in.  I hope this helps!

    Best,

    Alice
