Resume keywords play a significant role in 3 major areas:
✅In getting your resume ranked higher when recruiters search for candidates on job portals & databases.
✅In getting your resume to pass the Applicant Tracking System filter, which is based on specific keywords.
✅In getting your resume to catch recruiters’ attention, even when they infamously scan it for a few seconds.
Here’s how you can identify and use resume keywords to help you get shortlisted for an interview:
➡️STEP 1 – Read the job advertisement thoroughly and categorize the mandatory and preferred skills displayed in the posting.
➡️STEP 2 – Filter the hard skills from technical skills and soft skills and bucket them.
➡️STEP 3- Pay attention to any keyword that is repeated and pay special attention to it
➡️STEP 4- Scan through other similar job adverts and look for related keywords.
➡️STEP 5 – Browse through the LinkedIn profiles of people who hold similar positions in the target companies.
➡️STEP 6 – Use automated keyword finding apps on the internet, including LinkedIn Premium.
