Hi eileen knight make sure to follow up after you apply! How is your resume? To avoid being passed over, utilize [keywords] (https://www.jobscan.co/blog/top-resume-keywords-boost-resume/) in your resume. When recruiters search for them, they are looking for certain skills in your resume that match up with what THEY need.

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” and “hotel restaurant” or search for the word “hospitality.”

Recruiters are not going to search for words and phrases such as “outgoing” and “hard worker.” This is because keywords highlight your skills, not your traits.

Take some time to make a list of yours and add them to the work experience section of your profile so your resume is noticed. Not sure what skills you should add? Check [these out] (https://www.thebalancecareers.com/list-of-the-best-skills-for-resumes-2062422).
