When today’s job-seekers write a resume, it needs to appeal to two very different audiences: people and computers.
Of course, nothing is more important than a well-written, targeted resume that catches a recruiter’s eye. But with millions of people applying for jobs online, they must also have the key ingredient that attracts the attention of search engines.

Too few, and it might get lost in a sea of data, but too many will irritate the person who may decide whether you get a job. There’s a fine balance here, and at Stafflink.ca, Tim Collins offers some practical advice on how to find it.
