How to Find and Use “Key Words” in Your Job Interview

May 10, 2012 |

The words that you use to express yourself send a strong message about who you are and what you know. In fact, your vocabulary and the use of  appropriate words say more about you than the message you are trying communicate.

In the job search, the right words are essential to your success. Whether you are creating your resume or preparing answers for an interview, being aware of  and using “industry jargon” is important. Each industry uses “key words” or “lingo” to describe what is required for a job.

Job descriptions or postings, are a list of qualities and skills employers are looking for in a candidate – the “wish list.” By making use of this information and  using key words you can reveal yourself as a match as the “ideal” candidate.

Of course, you would never use a word just to impress your interviewer. Knowing the definition behind the word is what will convince the interviewer that you  know what you are talking about.

Finding the “key” words will make your statements more powerful. Speaking the industry lingo will help you be taken more seriously as a candidate worthy of a  job offer. For more information please click in link:
