Resumes are scanned for keywords by an automated system

Partially true: In most agencies, the resumes are scanned by real people, Human Resource (HR) Specialists. However, NASA uses a contextual grammar based Artificial Intelligence software for an automated resume review. The automated review is more complex than a simple keyword search, it is based on a contextual resume content matching. The resume review is used as one step, in a multistep application review process. This process includes a review of all required areas of the applicant’s eligibility and qualifications for the announcement. The resume review portion of the process includes both an automated and manual (by person) review of applicant packages.
