Has anyone ever used a company to write their resume for them? If so, was it worth it?
@AsteroidMiner Never done this, just switched to writing mine in LaTeX and have had some success with it.
@architect Thanks, I'll check it out.
@Katsudon @AsteroidMiner @architect do you know if those work with the automated systems that a lot of companies use to weed through resumes? I did a version of mine in Latex, but it failed in auto populating the fields in various online job boards I tried to use, so I'm not sure if going with a custom Latex resume was actually handicapping me.
@Katsudon @zingbretsen @AsteroidMiner It's just using OCR, so as long as you don't have crazy multi-column layouts, it'll get loaded mostly correctly. Might have to do some minor touch-ups in systems that allow you to modify the parsed results.
In Dice, my biggest issue is that section headers get merged with the first entry, nothing crazy.
