Large organisations no longer look at the individual (You) walking through the reception doors to an awaiting job position. You won't even know what the décor is like, or if reception has a water fountain, unless you first pass through their Resume scanning software.

Yes, you're the best Electrical Engineer! Yes, you're the finest in your field! This is not detected in the scanning process, as the software that reads your Resume/CV starts before you even hit first base in your application process.
