Using Keywords In A Resume

Kent Nolen

Q: Can you help me to understand the use of keywords?

A: Most people have heard about the importance of keywords.  Unfortunately, most don't know the ins and outs of why they are important.  Bottom line - you want to get your resume noticed, right?! In this day and age, computerized resume screening software is what is used to "flag" resumes for human screeners.  That being the case, your resume won't get noticed - or possibly even seen - unless it employs a keyword-centric approach that is laser focused on each specific requisition you respond to.
