The Key to My Career

Tags: umdbcom, Keywords Research

The job search process is demanding and competitive. You are only given one opportunity to catch the eyes of the company you’re applying for, and their first impression of you is given through writing. This is why it is crucial to pick the best words in your resume, that fit what the position is asking for. Key words can catch the employer’s attention, and cause them to look over your resume in further detail. They can be what separates you from landing the job, or missing it.

My job search is in the Health Care Management field. My goal is to first be a manager at any health care facility, just to get a sense of what the field is like. I will then go from there and hope to land a job at a clinic, and then eventually a department in the hospital setting.

In my findings, I found that many employer’s were looking for people with great leadership quality and people skills. Some of the keywords in most of the listings were: direct, interpersonal, friendly, and goals. To help shape my ability to the needs of these positions, I would include my leadership in groups and the goals I completed in them. I also found that there was a common need for computer skills, especially in Excel, Power Point and Word. For these keywords, I would list my skills for these applications as well.
