  • The site http://www.jobscan.co is also a great place to identify keywords for your resume. All you do is paste in your resume plus the job description, then Jobscan analyzes your job description for you automatically and identify the most important keywords for you! it literally takes seconds and it so worth the copy and paste. Saved me so much time AND I got more interviews using Jobscan! I recommend as well!

    • Intro to Keywords & Key Phrases With technology advancements, such as talent management systems, a resume that lacks keywords or key phrases relevant to your career field may hinder your job search. Referenced in Résumés in Cyberspace, written by Pat Criscito and published by Barron’s, she writes, “According to U.S. News & World Report, more than 1,000 unsolicited resumes arrive every week at most Fortune 500 companies, and before the days of applicant tracking systems and resume scanning, 80 percent were thrown out after a quick review.” She also states, “Instead of opening and reading thousands of resumes, companies can now scan them and sort them by keywords.” Copyright 2013, Resume to Referral, All Rights Reserved
