Adding insult to injury, some writers prepare resumes in both the first and third person, as in the example that came across my desk that began with the objective: Position which will utilize my experience and provide opportunity for advancement and growth, clearly in the first person, given the use of the pronoun my. The resume continued with a summary of experience that read: Performs accounts payable activities . . . Reviews and classifies invoices . . . Interacts with vendors, with verb after verb written in the third person.
If you dont have the exact keywords and phrases that the automated system is looking for, your application will fail. It is that simple. For an example, I will assume most everyone has done a Google search before. In the Google search window, a person will type in a search term and Google will deliver a list of possible sites that relate to the term that you typed in. Although the algorithms are different, the automated applicant tracking systems have, at their heart, the very same mechanisms and return to the employers agent, the HR person or company recruiter, a list of applications that have all of the specific keywords and phrases that they are looking for.
4. List education: Your professional resume must include a section on your education and certifications. This should be listed in reverse chronological order (or in order of relevance). Your most recent qualification is placed first along with the institution you received it from. Do not be shy to list major awards or accomplishments you received while studying. If you have not completed your course of study, provide a date for expected graduation or that it is in process.
