Your CV is the only real bait that you have available on job boards in orderto hook those recruiters who are searching for suitable candidates on job board search engines.With so many companies using the Internet to find talent, a search-friendly, keyword rich CVbecomes your most vital job hunting tool, and while so many job seekers are competing for jobs inwhat is known as one of the toughest job markets in decades, you need to ensure that your CVstands out and ranks at the top of the recruiters search results.By optimizing your CV for higher search rankings, you are effectively out-ranking yourcompetitors. In the traditional online world, this process is known by internet professionals asSearch Engine Optimization. This is where millions of pages (owned by millions of companies)compete on Search Engines to rank on the first page of the search engines results for a particularsearch query.Job Search engines work much like traditional search engines (such as Google, Bing or Yahoo) inthat it uses algorithmic software to find, crawl and index the pages (CVs) on the internet (jobboard) in order to better understand what the general theme or area of specialization is for thatthat page (CV). By optimizing your CV for targeted keywords, your CV has a better chance of out-ranking your competitors for that targeted search term.How to optimize your CV for targeted keywordsWhen compiling your CV, try to include more specific keywords instead of broader ones. Forinstance, if you are looking to be found for jobs that require a PHP Developer, be sure to use theword PHP Developer or PHP Web Developer throughout your CV where applicable rather thansimply saying that you did web development and then listing PHP separately under a list of keyskills. You would be far better off to list the full keyword phrase PHP Web Developer whereverpossible in addition to including the keywords in other areas such as a CV Title and under the list
  6. 6. of Technical Skills as well as in your cover note (both in the body and the subject line of the covernote). If the job portal asks you for a list of key skills - or for a CV title - be sure to include PHPWeb Developer there as well. The more frequently you can specify your target keywords, themore likely your CV is to rank higher in the search results.Most industries use very specific buzz-words, jargon and acronyms. If this is the case in yourindustry (e.g. SEO Analyst is used for Search Engine Optimization Analyst or CA is used forChartered Accountant) then be sure to use variations of both the full name as well as the acronymthroughout your CV.When listing your educational qualifications, try to be as specific as possible with regards to yourarea of specialization in order to further support the rest of the body of your CV. Where you havecompleted short courses or workshops that relate to the target keyword (job title), then list theseas well.By repeating the keyword (naturally and where relevant), you are reinforcing the fact that you are aspecialist in your field. To further enhance your CV - and to make it easier for the users to quicklyidentify that you are in fact the expert that they are looking for - make the keyword bold whereveryou have used it (including the acronyms, variations and synonyms thereof).Back up your credibilityIn the traditional Search Engine Optimization world, a page that receives links to it is consideredcredible (based on the quality of the linking website) and therefore counts as a vote of confidencefor that website. These links are considered important for search engines when determining whichweb pages are not only most relevant, but also most credible and authoritative.Since you are unable to get web links from related websites to your CV on a Job Boards CVdatabase, the most effective way to position your CV as credible and authoritative is to includereferences from previous employers, as well as links to websites, profiles or articles where youhave been mentioned or credited for professional opinions relating to your field of expertise. If youhave a professional Blog, include the link to this Blog in your CV as well.If you are using LinkedIn, include a link to the recommendations page (if you have receivedendorsements on your profile) on LinkedIn from your CV where recruiters can view comments andrecommendations by previous employers, colleagues or clients.By following these basic guidelines you will notice a significant increase in the number of viewsthat your CV receives.==== ====For Realtime Job Search Please ====
