If you are a job seeker, you need to know about Preptel. I am going to start with a caveat though, which is that networking is the best way to get a job. Having said that, job seekers should use all avenues to find a job, so that does include using job boards to submit your resume for positions of interest. When doing so, keywords are so important for your resume to be selected among hundreds of others submitted and entered into a company’s application tracking system (ATS). Preptel can help with this. There used to be a monthly fee and now it is FREE, so take advantage of it and test it out.
Preptel provides a tool that compares your resume to the keywords of individual job postings you are interested in applying for. It gives the resume a rating in terms of your match to keywords AND it tells you what keywords are missing so that you can then improve your resume and your chances of being selected. What could be better? So try it out and I would love to know how it goes for you and share your story with other job seekers.
