Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Resume Keyword Mistakes - Are You Making One?:


Eric Putkonen @ MinnesotaTechJobs.com

Good article!

I am sometimes asked what keywords to include. I must say that many of the keywords are in the job description you saw.

IT professionals, please remember that sometimes the HR person initially reviewing your resume may not be very technical...so use the keywords in the same way that the job descriptions use them. Say an employer asked for AS400...don't assume listing your iSeries experience has you covered. The non-technical HR person may not know that AS400 became iSeries.

The primary things being looking for in your resume are usually listed in the job description...make it easy for us to find it.
