Job search: How to create a 'machine-friendly' resume

 Despite signs of a cooling labor market, the job search process can still be daunting for many individuals. Hilke Schellmann, NYU professor and author of "The Algorithm: How AI Decides Who Gets Hired, Monitored, Promoted, and Fired and Why We Need to Fight Back Now," joins Wealth! to share valuable tips on crafting a strong resume.

Schellmann advises jobseekers to "throw out the old-age advice" of trying to make resumes stand out. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of creating a "machine-friendly" document, as resumes are increasingly being screened by AI-powered systems within companies. She advises applicants to keep their resumes "crisp and clear," including quantitative data and focusing on a well-crafted skills section. "It's probably never you. We know from data that it takes hundreds, often thousands of applications to find a job because recruiters and HR managers get thousands of applications per job," Schellmann tells Yahoo Finance. She adds: "Don't get discouraged; it's just a numbers game." For more expert insight and the latest market action, click here to watch this full episode of Wealth!
