@32awq0j5hyfpeJames, regarding your question on key words, what I do is look at the key words in the Knowledge Skills, and Abilities section in the job announcement and try incorporate as many of those key words as I can in my resume in USA Jobs that I am sending to apply for the position. I’m assuming you are applying for a Federal job, but even if its a State or County or City job, the idea is the same, look at what they are asking for in the job announcement and try to match it in your resume. The first screen on many of these systems is electronic, and they are looking for key words that match those in the job announcement. Hope this helps.
