Most job/company sites ask you to enter your resume online into their applicant tracking system. All of these systems work the same. A ‘parser’ is used to read the information from your resume. The parser will read your information vs. the information that has been programmed into the system. Keywords pulled from the job description are usually used. Your resume will be scored for relevancy, based on correlating matches between your resume and the keywords in the system.
