I had to go to a workshop, jobseekers, for unemployment on thursday and the speaker had some good information about resumes.

But in particular, KeyWords on a resume.

OK, it's like this: In the parts of your resume that are void of any words, type keywords that pertain to your experience, location, relocation and such and it doesn't need to be big keywords either you can reduce the font to small.

THEN when you are done highlight the lines of keywords, each line at a time, and change the color of the words from black to white. Now you cannot see the keywords.

BUT when HR or headhunters run the resumes through software that picks keywords to filter candidates the software will see the keywords on your resume.

Just something I wanted to pass along that I learned.

Thx for that info. I've taken some of those classes as well, and no one has ever mentioned that to me. I've heard about the software that is looking for the key words, but didn't know that could be done so that you can't see the words. I'm going to try it out, it may actually work.

I've done it to all my resumes as soon as I got home on thursday.

It cannot hurt.

Now, in your resume without the hidden keywords, have keywords in it but this procedure it adds more for the software that HR and HH's use.

I took so many notes at that class it wasn't funny.

The proper name for this procedure is White Marking.

I have never heard about it until last thursday.

The proper name for this is "white fonting" and I would not recommend it. A lot of the standard websites now include looking for "near white" or "white" font attributes. And of course if the recruiter does a "select all" on the document... all the words, white or not, are displayed.

Seriously, not recommended.

Then why would the person at unemployment suggest it?

I have no idea. Perhaps to be "clever".

I would suggest a skills section on the first page, after your "Summary" and before your "Work Experience". Here's just a brief bit of how I did it. Hope this helps.

MANAGEMENT SKILLS

Project Management: A, B, C skill, etc.
Business Analysis: A, B, C skill, etc.

TECHNICAL SKILLS

Networking: A, B, C skill, etc.
Mobile Telecommunications: A, B, C skill, etc.
