Job Interests, Skills and Experience Categories and Keywords

Usually the second tier of your keyword search. These are the types of jobs you want based on your job interests and the shills you can offer and deliver to your employer. You may need to use the category title with the more specific keywords in that category to obtain the best results.

Important note about skills: These are the top level skills you bring to bear; you also need to know and add to your search the very specific skills you have if you want to use them. For example, an animator might specialize in 2D animations. A writer might specialize in children’s books. A graphic designer might be great with Adobe Illustrator but not CorelDRAW. Employers usually put the specific skills and tools you’ll need to use in their job posts so searching with yours can really tighten up your search.

Industry Categories and Business Types within Them

If you are particular about the type of business(es) for which you want to work, you may want to use the relevant keywords from the lists below. For example, If you are a camp host, you may prefer state parks over RV parks (typically privately owned and managed). If you are a proofreader, you may only want to work for publishing houses or, conversely, authors themselves. This section may, then, be useful in helping you further target your job search. Remember though that less is more is a good philosophy for keyword searching because too many keywords may eliminate too many opportunities you’d like to review.
