Companies use some kind of screening process to identify the right resource, and if you don't have the right keywords on your Executive Resume, you won't even get through to a recruiting manager.

To crack this, you should use the industry specific keywords which the companies look for, you can do this by Identifying the common keywords, terminology, and key phrases that routinely pop up in the job descriptions of your target role and incorporate them into your resume, assuming you have those skills. This will help you to crack the initial screening and you get on to the recruiter or hiring manager.

 

What should you say in a resume?

Career objectives are distracting and not going neither you or the hiring manager, so it's a waste of space to include them on your Executive resume. Instead of that, you can replace this an executive summary, which should play a role of "30-second elevator pitch" where you should explain “who you are” and “what you're looking for”. In approximately three to five sentences, explain what you’re skilled at, most interested in, and how you can add value to a prospective employer.

 

What should you avoid in a resume?

Never try to develop a one-size-fits-all resume to send to all companies, you will always end up with something where employers will toss it in the recycle bin. Employers expect a resume which is specifically made for them. They expect you to clearly show how and why you fit the position in a specific organization. Employers also expect your achievements with exact numbers.

 

What is the meaning of keywords in job?

Keywords are the gears to get into the interview panel. Keywords depends on your field and the type of job you want. The categories of keywords you may want to use include:

 

Field or industry specific Keywords: These keyword narrows the results to an extent, begin by including the field or industry you would like to work in, such as "marketing" or "publishing" or "business development."

 

Specific location: It's up to you how precise you would like to be. You can add state, city, town, or even a zip code.

 

Desired job title: You can write in your desired title (e.g., Project coordinator) but remember that not all companies use the same titles. One company may call it the position "Project coordinator," while another calls the exact role as "Project associate." Try different variations to see which generates the best results.

 

Industry-Specific skills, tools, and jargon: As well as searching by job titles, you can search by the functionality required by a job. For instance, you can also search by a programming language or the skills required to do the job.
