Large companies receive huge numbers of resumes for every job vacancy. Going through each of them manually is virtually impossible without an army of HR assistants. That’s why companies use resume screening software to facilitate the initial selection process. Your resume has to get past those first screenings to get in front of the HR manager.

The software reads your resume, and then scores and ranks your qualifications against the requirements of the job you’re applying for. Only the best-performing resumes get invited to the interview, so you need to know how the screening software works to get past the obstacles it presents.
