Lever is able to auto-read almost any type of resume file. Supported formats include:
- Microsoft Word (including DOCX)
- Adobe PDF
- Rich Text (RTF)
- Corel WordPerfect
- MS Office HTML
- Open Office (ODF)
However, Lever will have trouble with resumes that either have very unusual formatting, or are scanned (which makes the resume into an image).
How do I know if a resume is scanned?
If you can’t click on the document text and select the text, then the document is scanned, and can’t be auto-read in Lever. We suggest downloading a program like Adobe Acrobat or using Google Drive to convert the scanned document into a document with readable text.
