Should I tailor my resume to fit an employer’s job posting?

Resume Key Words

Using the same key words that an employer uses in a job posting has become one of the most important resume writing criteria.

For instance, if the phrase “excellent communication skills” is used in a job posting, then it would behoove you to use the same or similar phrase in your resume. This is not only important for catching the recruiter's eye, but it is also important because many companies now use computer software that searches resumes for key phrases.
