Sandy,

 

You make good points on an important subject--resume writing

 

@Julian --The applicant tracking system software will access candidate resumes, or better--the words (and word arrangements) on their resumes that match the words (and word arrangements) on the job description.  So any word parsing that is done--is done regardless of the resume format. 

 

The job description and any additional words/phrases/acronyms, etc., entered by the recruiter/hiring manager in a resume search will pull-up a list of the top candidates based on their well written resumes.  Those individuals have a shot at an interview(s) and possibly  a job offer.

 

To Sandy's point, "A well-written resume can be the key to connecting positively with a potential employer"--because once the resume is pulled up for visual inspection by the recruiter--what is stated; how it's stated and why it's stated will either impress or depress the decision maker.
