The unfortunate truth is that many job seekers are not offered interviews simply because recruiters cannot find them. Follow these tips to ensure you are found instead of your competitors.
- KEYWORDS. Research what keywords are most relevant to your profession and which terms are the most sought by recruiters. You can discover these by reviewing job descriptions, industry trade articles, and online ads. Include the keywords several times throughout your resume without repeating exact sentences.
- ABBREVIATIONS. Recruiters may be searching by full titles or abbreviations, so include both just to be sure. Most recruiters use applicant tracking systems, which usually do not make the connection between full titles and abbreviations.
- AVOID WHITE KEYWORDS. You may have heard that adding keywords to the bottom of your resume in white font is a good way to increase you chances of being noticed by a keyword search. Unfortunately, modern applicant tracking systems turn everything on your resume black meaning white keywords are clearly visible. Instead, ensure you include all your keywords in the main body of your resume.
