Kelly's Resume/Career Quick Tip of the Week
INCLUDE OPERATING SOFTWARE UTILIZED ON YOUR RESUME AND LINKEDIN: In the transportation sector, like many others, having your software listed on your resume and LinkedIn is critical, yet I suspect it’s only on 10-20% of profiles and resumes.

In today's electronic world of hiring and recruiting, being keyword searchable by AI, recruiters and HR is critical. Something as simple as having your software type listed may make all the difference in being found and hired for that next great career opportunity.
