Developing your Keyword Resume

What is the best type of resume to use on the Internet? A keyword (or buzzword) resume.


Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with and this is The Job Search Minute. Think about your resume from the perspective of the employer, specifically the person reviewing your resume. In most cases, your resume will not even be read unless it is first found. Most resumes are stored in resume databases at job sites, and in applicant tracking systems at employer sites. They are stored in digital format and are only found if the correct keywords are included. So make sure your resume includes all of your keywords that are specific to your career or industry. Don’t list any keywords where you do not have any experience or education, since you would come up in search results for jobs, which you are not qualified. But make sure that you do include your keywords for employers that are searching for individuals with your background. Those keywords will make your resume findable, readable, and actionable.
