A Visual Way To Highlight Job Search Keywords

This video shows you how to better visualize the key aspects of  job by focusing on keywords.

 

When is this technique useful?

There are two main circumstances when this tip is useful:

1) Let’s say you’ve identified ten good job opportunities and you have the full job descriptions. But only want to focus on one or two of the jobs.  This method of highlighting keywords, using Wordle.net as a visualization tool, will help you see the keywords better.  Once the key words are more apparent, you can use them to select the top two jobs and create your cover letters and shape your resume to focus on what’s important.

Remember, the hiring manager created the job description so it is likely she will be looking for those keywords in cover letters to help her filter her stack of applications.

2) Yay! You received an interview and now you need to prepare for the interview.  By using this technique, you can zoom in on the most important job aspects and skills.  I used this technique before an interview and it highlighted a key technical skill.  I reviewed the technical skill before the interview (I wish I had prepared more) and was asked about it and was tested on it.
