“Six Ways to Ruin Your Resume”

Article – Greg Schaffer, Computerworld

“…and less than half have made the cut. Although I rejected some candidates because of their lack of experience (or, rather, their lack of demonstrated required experience), others had errors in their application packages that lowered their ranking — errors that could have been easily corrected.”

Resume Tip Thirteen – The Best Keywords

Many companies use digital databases to search for potential employees. This means that their HR department will conduct searches based on specific keywords. Therefore if your resume doesn’t have the keywords associated to the position description of the job you are applying for, you will be cut from their list of possible applicants even before the ‘real’ selection process begins.

So how do you ensure the correct keywords are in your resume? The best way is to survey advertisements for similar positions across a number of companies. If you currently hold a similar position you may also find a number of these words (usually nouns) in your own job description. This research will reveal a fairly standard set of keywords that relate to the position sought from an employer’s point of view.

Here are some extracts from real ads for salespeople from all over the world.

Ad 1

We are looking to enhance our team with a dynamic, results driven, business to business salesperson. Display advertising sales experience is crucial, along with a positive work ethic and motivation to succeed. This role would best suit someone who has developed strong new business development skills.

Ad 2

What We Look For: Self-starter with strong work ethic who can work independently. Warm interpersonal and with sound communication skills and a strong motivation to succeed!

Ad 3

Experienced Direct Salesperson required to generate new business in the mobile phone industry. To sell contracts business to business. Experience preferred in this industry but not essential. We are looking for a self motivated, hard working, hungry individual who wants the best in life.

Ad 4

The ideal candidate will have sales experience of some kind, and can demonstrate genuine enthusiasm for selling ads. A genuine enthusiasm for (and understanding of) our mission and content is absolutely necessary. The Ad Salesperson must have an excellent phone manner and strong communication skills, must be able to work on deadline, and must be able to handle multiple tasks in an organized manner. Computer literacy (Microsoft Word, Excel, File-maker Pro) is a must.

Give yourself the best chance to at least get onto an interview shortlist… search your keywords and phrases!
