Make a List of Job Search Keywords

Copyright Mark Paprocki

When you look for jobs online the most effective way to search is to use job keywords to find jobs in the career fields and industries you are interested in.

Keywords can be more effective than using the predefined search options in the job banks, because they search the entire listing (job description, job title, contact information, etc.) for the keyword(s) that you use.

Create a list of job search keywords that reflect your interests - location where you want to work, type of position, industry, type of job, etc. Review these lists of skills for resumes, so your skills match the job requirements.
