Tuesday Tech: Keyword Optimization / VIRTUAL

January 26 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0

Each week we explore a different theme as we seek to support each other while navigating a virtual job search.
This week’s theme is Keyword Optimization. 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 a few small adjustments. We will also discuss what to include in your résumé to minimize tweaking and personalizing.

***All workshops scheduled for our Wheaton American Job Center 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 Floyd Sally.
