SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. The idea here is simple – think of the words a recruiter or HR manager might use to find someone with your qualifications and find a place to put them in.

For example. Let’s say your an online media sales person. A recruiter might use the terms ‘Sales’ and  ‘CPM’ to find you. So make sure those words are on your resume – and if you can’t find a logical place in the content, find a way to stick them into the Skills section.

Happy hunting as always!
