n this age of automation and big data it is unlikely that your resume will be reviewed by a human when you apply for a job at most large companies.

The majority of companies now use software to manage the application process. This job application software sifts through thousands of applications looking for keywords to find potential candidate matches.  While this software saves recruiters and companies time and money it means some qualified applicants may be overlooked by the robots.

This is where Jobscan can help. Jobscan was built to help job seekers improve their resumes and increase their changes of passing robot analysis.  Jobscan literally scans the candidates resume in seconds and compares it to the job posting.  It then gives a “match rate” along with recommendations for improvements including the addition of specific skills and key words.

Jobscan was founded by US innovators James Hu and Michael Lee.  The site gives users one free month and then charges a subscription fee of $90 every three months.

This is a great example of innovation designed with the modern job seeker in mind.  You can try Jobscan yourself at www.jobscan.co
