Worry About Keywords?
These days, more
than 80% of resumes are processed electronically, searched for keywords,
and ranked on the basis of keyword content. In other words, your resume
will come up as a match during electronic processing ONLY if it contains
the right keywords.
The Right Keywords = Better Matches = More Interviews
To get employers'
attention, your resume must reflect the keyword focus of actual jobs
that match your objectives and talents.
To ensure 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 1) resume strategy, 2) keyword focus, and 3) language
Even if your
resume is not processed electronically, you need to have the right
keywords to communicate 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.
