  • The site http://www.jobscan.co is also a great place to identify keywords for your resume. All you do is paste in your resume plus the job description, then Jobscan analyzes your job description for you automatically and identify the most important keywords for you! it literally takes seconds and it so worth the copy and paste. Saved me so much time AND I got more interviews using Jobscan! I recommend as well!

    Hi, I am Marianne Steen, and I uploaded this presentation. As you can see, words are kind of 'glued' together in some (parts) of the slides.

    I would really like to correct this - but I have little clue of what to do. Any suggestions of yours is welcome! Thanks, Best regards, Marianne
