How to use keywords in your CV 

There are lots of different ways to make a CV standout, but one of the most effective ways is to use keywords. Due to the sheer amount of applications, the hiring manager has to be very quick in deciding who to shortlist for an interview.

Use keywords to instantly grab the employer’s attention…

Where do I get the keywords from? 

All of the keywords you’ll ever need are contained within the job advert. No matter how short or long this advert is, you’ll easily be able to find everything you need to plan out and create your CV from here.

What type of keyword am I looking for? 

Keywords come in many different types when extracting them from the job advert. For example, it may be the way they phrase a sentence on what they are expecting from an employee –

‘We require a dynamic, hard working individual who has experience in sales’

So the keywords to take from this sentence would be –

Dynamic

Hard working

Experience in sales 

The advert will often also list the skills and qualifications required for the role, so look to see if you can match any of these and then use the same keywords in your CV.

Why are keywords so important? 

The whole point of a CV is to showcase your skills, qualifications and experience to a prospective employer to prove to them that you are the right person for the job. One of the most effective ways to show this is to match the keywords contained within the job advert, as it shows them that you have what they are looking for.

If you don’t use keywords in your CV then you are instantly making it hard for the reader to see that you are right for the role. It’s important to remember that each CV is only read on average for about 20-30 seconds before moving onto the next, which is why it is extremely important to make a great first impression.
