Recruiters and Employers store resumes that have been posted by job candidates in databases. When they look for a person , they look by keywords. Keywords would be the essential requirements for the role this person will occupy. The search programs matches the keywords with text in the CV or resume together with the search criteria.
This shows the importance that core keywords for the jobs you would like to be considered for, are in your resume. You can find these keywords by researching job adverts in your industry, the company website and professional associations.
Your resume is divided into several sections. You can include the essential keywords in your career objective or achievements summary or professional summary. Include the keywords & action verbs in your job descriptions & your responsibilities as well.
The 'resume keywords technique' can be used both in chronological & functional resume styles.Related:
