Checklist: Is your resume ready for prime time?

By Professor8 ·
The goal is to thwart the accursed "candidate management system"/ "talent management system"/ "applicant management system", so that a real live conscientious human being actually reads the resume and you thus have some remote chance of landing real work, despite being a US citizen.

So, send them a jpeg or a text file that's not optimized for such abusive systems. Reverse the order of the sentences. Make bullet points in such a way that it's clear to a human, but not to the stupid parsers. Avoid the buzz-words these systems expect and, instead, use non-brand-name specific terminology.
