I have been using a PDF resume written in Latex, and it recently occurred to me that Applicant Tracking Systems used by human resources may not be parsing my resume correctly. According to this Reddit post, I need to add

\input{glyphtounicode}
\pdfgentounicode=1

I also have

\usepackage[scaled=0.95]{helvet} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}

Is there anything that could be preventing my resume from being parsed correctly?

  • I am in exactly the same place as you, my efforts so far have included submitting my resume to some automated parsers. I get some strange results, but I haven't quite gotten as far in to the fix-it-with-better-coding avenue as you. – repurposer Jul 22 '16 at 20:31
  • @repurposer What automated parsers have you used? Like ones that gave strange results. – user369210 Jul 22 '16 at 22:16
  • rezscore and topresume. Not sure how private the info is, mind – repurposer Jul 22 '16 at 23:14
  • @repurposer just make a resume with Lorem ipsum. Same difference really – user369210 Jul 23 '16 at 0:03
