Purpose: Mid-career professional in the advertising industry seeking to advance and promote her career.
This sample resume is loaded with keywords important to this mid-career professional’s target industry and profession. Keywords are essential. If you are conducting a job search it is essential that you assume your resume will land in an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Simply put, ATS are the databases in which your resume is stored and (hopefully) retrieved based on keyword searches related to positions a recruiter or employer is trying to fill. It is common for applicants to try to include many of these important keywords in the profile and this resume is no exception. But even more keywords have been included by using them to categorize accomplishment statements. A tip: collect 6-12 job announcements for positions that would interest you. Go through them with a highlighter, highlighting all the important keywords used in each. Now go back to your resume and make sure you have used these keywords in the text.
