2082038 - Inline Resume Viewer aka Resume Carousel - Recruiting


  • The Inline Resume Viewer (also known as the Resume Carousel) allows users to view images of resumes and cover letters in the web browser without requiring the users to download the documents to open them in a separate application, such as MS Word or Adobe Acrobat

  • Resume Carousel


Quick Facts and Known Limitations:

  • Resumes and cover letters coverts to images when uploaded by candidate(s).
  • When a recruiter views the cover letter or resume within the Inline Resumre viewer, there's error checking that determines if there's already a copy of that image available. If no image is found, the documents are converted to that image.
  • If the original resume is a pdf and this pdf was created by a software that does not conform to Adobe's published PDF specification, the image will display junk characters.
  • About 2% of resumes are formatted that causes failures during the conversion process. As a workaround, you can download the original file.
  • Certain MS Word fetures aren't readable after the image conversion process:
    • Content stored within MS Word "Content Controls" is viewed as if it's a data entry form, and isn't readagble to all programs
    • If image had been croped using MS Word, the converted image appears as it did before it was cropped.
