Job application tips

Here’s an interesting tip for job seekers: hiring managers often use electronic scanners to rank candidates based on a keyword search of applications.

So, to maximise your chances of success, incorporate keywords from the job posting into your resume as they apply to your experience.

According to CareerBuilder.com, the terms employers search for most often are:

  • problem-solving and decision-making skills (50 per cent)
  • oral and written communications (44 per cent)
  • customer service or retention (34 per cent)
  • performance and productivity improvement (32 per cent)
  • leadership (30 per cent)
  • technology (27 per cent)
  • team-building (26 per cent)
  • project management (20 per cent)
