Many companies scan resumes, so first you should make sure that your
resume meets scanning requirements so it will be read by a human.
The leading maker of resume scanning systems created a web page with advice
on writing resumes to pass the scanner test. The page includes other
job hunting advice, links to lists of real job openings, and a resume
template. The URL is:
