Frequently Asked Questions

Resume Reviewer is an online tool providing instant, automated feedback on your resume with suggestions based on the features commonly assessed by Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). An ATS is the technology currently used by many employers and recruiters to screen resumes both in and out of selection processes.

Students are recommended to upload the Word version of their resume. It is more difficult for the system to read a PDF version which means you won't get the detailed feedback you need to improve.

Green = a score of 85 and above means you have included many of the key elements.

Yellow = a score between 51 and 84 means you are missing a number of key elements.

Red = a score of 50 or less means you have a lot of elements missing from your resume and will need to incorporate the feedback to improve your score and overall resume.

The best way to incorporate the feedback is to have Resume Reviewer and your resume open at the same time so you can switch between the two documents.

You are able to print the feedback or download as a PDF.

Click on each section so that the feedback from each section is visible then click on the print icon at the top right of the screen to print or save.

No, you need to open both the program and your resume separately to incorporate the feedback.

Yes, but we would still recommend you ask someone else to read through it for a final check.

Feedback can be dismissed by you if you think the feedback is not relevant or inaccurate for any reason. As soon as you dismiss any of the feedback, your overall score will be updated.

Resume Reviewer doesn't know the specific role you are applying for so cannot provide feedback on how effectively your resume is responding to the selection criteria. Before applying for a role, ensure you are clearly addressing the selection criteria on your resume.
