Use keywords in your CV #toptiptuesday 40/52

When constructing your CV its really important to include keywords that are relevant to the job roles you are trying to secure.

Many recruiters use software to find suitable candidates for their vacancies. This software automatically scans CVs to pick out relevant keywords that match what the client is looking for.

So for instance, if the job role is for a CAS Alias Modeller, the recruiter may scan CVs that include the words CAS Modeller, Digital modelling or Alias software.

But how do you know which keywords to include in your CV?

These will change based on the job role you are looking for so its best to tailor the ones you use in your CV every time you submit it for a new role.

We recommend looking at the job description, picking out keywords, and then including these in a skills section in your CV that you can easily change each time you apply for a new role.
