Tuesday Tech: Keyword Optimization

February 9 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0

Each week we explore a different theme to support your virtual job search.

Learn how to speak the language of Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) that is used to electronically sort résumés before they cross the desk of a hiring manager. You can increase your résumé “hits” after learning a few tips and making small adjustments. We will also discuss strategies to minimize “tweaking” and personalizing to streamline your application submissions.

***All workshops scheduled for our American Job Centers located in Wheaton and Germantown will go on as planned but will now take place online. You can access them via our web calendar. Participants must register on the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWE). Once registered, you’ll be emailed an invitation with instructions to attend the workshop at the scheduled time.

For more information, contact Santina Burakiewicz-Carlson or Bridget Flaherty.
