Keywords For Search
Make a text file of keywords that are your selling points and/or
are the keywords for your job search. This is done by taking the job
title that you are looking for (i.e. help desk) or the skill that
you use most frequently (HTML, Visual C++), and putting all these
words together into one handy text file. Often, job sites will ask
you what your top 10 skills are. You'll pull the skills with which
you are most familiar out of your professional skills (and possibly
qualifications) section. Some allow 20 or more. Make a list that's
separated by commas for ease of cutting and pasting. In addition,
when a recruiter asks you what your top skills are, you have an
answer right in front of you, without having to fumble or say
"ummm" a lot.
