Why use Resume Check?

The hard truth is, according to the Wall Street Journal, approximately 75% of submitted resumes never make it into a hiring manager’s hands.

Most companies use screening software called applicant tracking systems (or ATS) to filter and rank applicants. While the goal is to weed out less-qualified job seekers, some highly qualified candidates don’t make it past the ATS. Since an ATS scans resumes for precise job titles, skills and experience, the modern resume lives and dies by its specific phrasing and being error-free.

Resume Check helps you make it past the ATS by catching and suggesting fixes for more than 30 of the most common resume errors including formatting, word choice, measurable results and more.
