My resume was not properly read. So, what do I do now?

If you were shown an error message

If you were shown the following error message after uploading your resume to Score My Resume, we weren’t able to process your resume correctly:

This could be due to a variety of factors, but it’s typically a simple repair, so don’t panic! Please make sure that your submitted resume meets the following criteria so that our engine can properly parse and analyse it:

is written in English and includes a section on work experience; you could also include a section on projects or activities! Simply ensure that the part is titled with something like ‘Experience,’ ‘Projects,’ ‘Activities,’ or ‘Work Experience,’ and that it is in PDF format and is not password protected.
makes use of a standard font (e.g. Calibri, Times New Roman, Arial)
Export it using Microsoft Word or Google Docs if it contains text and isn’t a scanned document or image (e.g. created in Photoshop). Check to see if the text in the PDF can be highlighted.
is no more than 4 pages long and has a maximum file size of 2 MB (notice that your resume should be no more than 2 pages!)

After you’ve double-checked the above, try re-submitting your resume; you should receive a response! Please tell us if you have any problems.
