How to be successful in finding a Job

Keywords for Accounting Jobs

Job Ad and Keyword research is important to being hired for the job that you want. It is finding keywords in job Ads and incorporating them into your resume. This lets the employer know that you mean business. My job search was looking for an accounting position. I found a few ethical keywords and in my resume I could include that I have taken a few ethics courses to help show that I know how to be ethical. The main types of keywords I found had to do with entering, reviewing, and reconciling.

Job Ad Research
