Recruiters and hiring managers spend an average of six seconds on each resume. Let's face it - they don't read your resume. They skim it quickly for keywords to get a sense of if you're a good fit or not.
For example, if you're applying for a Customer Service job that needs some experience, recruiters are going to make sure you have some customer service experience by quickly scanning your resume for the keywords 'customer service' or 'customer support'.
If your resume contains the keywords that were in the job description, it suggests you have the skills the job requires and that it is a well targeted resume.
Most companies use resume screening software, or Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), to quickly filter and rank the thousands of applicants that apply to each job.
These software rank your resume based on its relevancy to the job description.
They do this by scanning your resume for specific skills and keywords. If your resume doesn't have critical keywords (like 'customer support' in the example above), your resume will be instantly rejected.
To ensure your resume gets past ATS, you need to include the right keywords employers are looking for. Here's where Targeted Resume comes in handy - it is a resume keyword scanner that analyzes your resume's keywords and ensures you have covered the most important keywords.
And it's all for free.
With Targeted Resume, you can instantly check if your resume contains all the right skills and keywords.
It works by comparing your resume to the job description and finding important keywords
you missed out from your resume.
Keep in mind that no two jobs are exactly the same, even if they have the same job title. Some jobs might prioritize specific skills over others. This is where Targeted Resume is especially useful - it allows you to compare your resume to as many job descriptions as you apply to.
When you analyze a job posting, the tool calculates a comparison score to help you understand if your resume is well-matched to the job posting. In the tool, we refer to this as the "Relevancy Score."
A score lower than 80 suggests that your resume is missing at least five core keywords from the job posting and is not matched to the job you are applying to.
