What does your resume say about you? See which jobs are a good fit for you by posting both your resume and the job descriptions you’re looking at into the SkillsEngine Profile Builder. Here are two great ways you can use this tool:
1. Choose the "Resume" tab, paste your resume into text area and click "Analyze and View Output."
What kind of occupations does it say you’re a good match for? What skills does it say you have? If this isn't the story you want to tell with your resume, tweak it and try again. You can also use your LinkedIn profile or a cover letter!
2. Click the "Job Posting" tab, paste a job description in which you're interested into the text area and click "Analyze and View Output."
Does this match the profile for your resume? If you have these skills, but they're not the ones on your resume, build a new resume to match the job description profile! Keep comparing and contrasting until they match.
