Gostaria de saber como posso me descrever ou descrever alguém, quanto às características pessoais e profissionais. Exemplo, "Organized", "Leadering Teams", estes termos são realmente usados?
When searching for words to describe our personal characteristics or professional traits and skills when looking for a job or writing a resume, it is important to use action verbs to describe your functions and also equally important to use keywords describing the various functions you have performed in jobs. http://www.job-hunt.org/resumekeywords.shtml
has many suggestions including looking up job descriptions to know which buzz words are currently in vogue. Nowadays when resumes are submitted electronically, the employer will likely do a search on the keywords that he is interested in in a job candidate.http://www.job-interview.net/12steps.htm
has a step by step recipe for writing a resume and recommends the reference work Occupation Outlook Handbook at http://stats.bls.gov/oco/oco1002.htm
is the description of the job of librarian. Some buzzwords I gleaned from the job description are user services, technical services, and administrative services, reference and children’s librarians, analyzing users’ needs, instructional role
. If I were writing a resume, I would be sure to include the buzzword "Instructional role
" instead of "teacher
" so that the employer knows that I know how to "talk the talk" (i.e., know the cutting edge jargon) in order to entice him to let me show him that I also know how to "walk the walk" (perform the job effectively). When I was looking for work as a recent grad, it was recommended that we use the words "life long learner" and "team player" to describe ourselves.
In the screenshot of a job description from moster.com below, I underlined the key words I would use in a resume or job description.
