Quinncia is an automated, always-available tool to help you develop a solid first draft of your resume before getting feedback from a career coach. Quinncia uses the same technology many employers use to screen resumes, to help make sure your resume is seen by a recruiter, not rejected by a robot. Then Quinncia’s AI can give you a practice interview, with questions based on your resume.
There are a few requirements for resumes to parse through Applicant Tracking Systems. It should always be created in a Word document or a Google Doc, then exported as a PDF. You should include your contact information, education, and your experiences where you highlight your skills and achievements.
Avoid using graphics or images, these can cause you to be immediately rejected. Also, stick to a simple straightforward format for your resume. A single column with clear titles and impactful content. Check out the HireSmith Resource Library for a sample resume.

What is AI Interviewing?
Quinncia’s interviewing feature offers tailored mock interviews and individualized feedback using artificial intelligence that helps you practice telling your story based on experiences on your resume.
Different from video interviewing, many employers are moving first-round interviews to AI-assisted interviews, where there isn’t a human on the other end, and instead questions are presented on the screen or audio. Using this mock interview system can also help you prepare your interview presence for eventual video interviews as well.
How does AI Software Affect You as an Applicant?
About 90% of companies use an ATS to review applications. ATS are set up to reject applicants’ resumes for graphics, photos, incorrect margins, columns, grammatical errors, and more. While you may be a great candidate for an open job or internship, if your resume does not parse an ATS, your resume will never be seen by a human reviewer.
When the average corporate job opening receives roughly 250 applications, you have to ensure your resume is ready to be read by an ATS. These systems make it easy for applicants to apply for jobs online. This means you are up against people who maybe have no interest in your dream job or internship. The last thing we want is for that person to move along in the application process instead of you.
If your resume is not formatted correctly or filled with impactful skills and competencies, you may be removed from the application process before you ever get to the hiring manager.
