At last check, one online job bank had 4,935 jobs posted in Boise that pay more than $50,000 per year, and 2,800 of them were listed at more than six figures. Use these keywords on your resume so you can land them!
When you find the right job and the salary, benefits, and schedule come together, it feels great and you just know it's right in your gut. It feels like you. But how in the heck do you land that perfect gig? Hiring experts say it boils down to knowing how employers process resumes.
CareerBuilder's president told ApartmentTherapy.com that two sources will scan your resume when you apply, and one is human and the other is not. A recruiter and an applicant tracking system (ATS) will both give it a glance, and the ATS is scanning for keywords to see "how closely your resume matches the job description." In other words, use the same words and phrases that you see in the job description so things match up.
To stand out with the recruiter, the experts also say it's a good idea to show your pizzazz and flair for working with a team so you'll stand out and prove that you'll be a good fit. To do that, it's best to tell short stories that will show how you "conquered challenges and conflicts in the workplace" rather than list accomplishments through bullet points. Think short, compelling social media stories within the confines of your resume.
Some of the top keywords to use on a resume, according to Jobscan:
I looked at the job postings on ZipRecruiter, and there are thousands! Some of the top companies hiring around the Treasure Valley include Costco, AmerisourceBergen, Burlington, Maverick, Sykes, HCA, Synchrony Financial, and dozens more.
Setting the filters on $50,000 and above produces around five thousand available jobs, at companies like Rod Williams and Associates, NSTAR Global Servies, Wenaha Group, MetalMan Roofing, Goodwin Recruiting, KPMG, St. Luke's Health, Humana, and thousands of others. There are job openings across all industries, including sales, construction, insurance, HR, healthcare, pest control, dentistry, project management, retail, and hospitality.

It's a great time to be looking for a job, and you'll land it if you can put together a good "technical design strategy" that shows off your "sales and operations training." And thanks for listening at work!
