Sometimes, position postings are somewhat vague, making it difficult to know what keywords to use. Fortunately, there are skills almost every employer looks for that you can include on your resume.
• Analytical Skills
• Core Competencies
• Leadership Skills
• Interpersonal Skills
• Organization Skills
It's important not only to use the phrases, but also to show how you have used these skills in previous positions. Another good tip is to read online position postings carefully as there is sometimes a list of keywords attached at the end. If the position you're applying for doesn't have them, look at other similar positions for keyword ideas.
Finally, online resources such as LiveCareer are great sources of up-to-date information on using keywords to increase resume effectiveness. Don't forget to use keywords in your cover letters, too.
