Worry About Keywords?
of the time, a resume's effectiveness hinges
on whether it contains the "right" keywords.
the great majority of resumes are processed electronically and
stored in resume databases. Your resume will come up as a match
during electronic processing ONLY if it contains the right keywords.
Right Keywords = More Interviews
the right keywords for a particular resume, I extract keywords
from 2-3 examples of your "ideal" job, and then use
these examples to determine resume strategy and keyword focus.
your resume is not processed electronically,
it needs to focus
on the right keywords to convey
to human readers that you
are a match.
If you don't
have good examples of your ideal job, or if you'd like to learn
how to search for jobs online, read How
to Search for Job Target Examples Online.
all you will have left at the end of the
day are your name and reputation. Invest in
them wisely, and you and others will
simultaneously reap the rewards.
