I have created a nice LaTeX resume.
However, having uploaded it to an online job search I am worried the automated extraction does not perform well.
Are there any specific packages or other tips to improve the machine-readability of a PDF file (particularly with a view to producing resumes)?
I am using multicols which messes up extraction. Disabling multicols is easy but then I cannot get the content onto 2 sides. Is there anyway to make multicols output easy to extract for an automated system?
Does anyone have any strategies for maintaining two versions of the resume, one machine readable and one typeset for printing? Is there anyway to have some kind of 'alt-text' attached to the PDF that these systems would pick up? The problem is when submitting an application there is no way to know if they will use an automated feature extraction.
The biggest problem is that the extracted text seemed to have no spaces (allthewordscomeouttogether). Is there any way to force LaTeX to include a space character in the text?
