I need some advice.

Back in March 29th 2019, I quit my job at the Golden Dragon Copper Tubing Mill in Pine Hill, Alabama. I was a Welder/Maintenance Mechanic. I quit because stress from things that happened at home and being screwed with the pay wage at work there after a year. I've been putting in applications at so many places and no responses, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any advice? #help #advice

Hi Kenyati Scott Feeling frustrated because you applied to a TON of jobs and you still aren’t hearing back???

The problem could be that your resume is missing some important information!

If a company uses what’s called a [applicant tracking system] ( or ATS, your resume will go through a screening process. If it’s missing certain elements it will be pushed aside and not viewed by that particular company.

So, let’s look at some tips on how to use keywords to update your resume and beat the ATS!

Keywords are words that relate to the skills, abilities, credentials, and qualities that a hiring manager looks for in a candidate. When recruiters search for keywords in the ATS, they are looking to match certain concrete skills in your resume to their current needs. Come check out to see how yours match up and a list of keywords [here] ( )!

Say for example you are applying for a job as the manager of a hotel restaurant. A recruiter may search for phrases such as “restaurant manager,” “hotel restaurant,” or even for the word “hospitality.” Recruiters will not likely look for words and phrases such as “outgoing," "hard worker,” "team player," etc.

It’s very important to remember that keywords highlight your skills and NOT your traits. Be sure to take some time to make an updated list of your keywords and add them to the work experience section of your resume!
