If your resume has underlined words in it, you could very easily be passed over for your next opportunity. That’s because computer scanners, which now read more than 80% of resumes…can’t decipher certain lower case letters such as p, q, or g that touch the underscored line. That’s problematic with electronic scanners because when any of the letters touch each other or an underscore, the computer can’t read it and it turns to goofy symbols. So skip the underlines in your resume and stick to clean fonts that any computer scanner can easily understand.
