The keywords are the commonly used words in the job postings/advertisements, for example skills such as; computer literacy, excellent communication and interpersonal skills and qualifications such as; active nursing license, CPR and recent experience in the area to which you are applying, are commonly listed on job postings. The more your resume shows you have the skills and qualifications, the more likely that it will be selected and human resources staff will review it, then forward it to the manager.

I am in Toronto and the hospitals here receive a high volume of resumes and have been using keyword software for a few years.

For more information, I suggest you read the article on donnacardillo com entiltled "Keywords are the key to getting your online resume read"

Managers in AHS have access to all applicants resumes. My unit just had 107 for our last full time vacancy. We saw the good, the bad, and the just plain, never heard of grammar and spell check versions.

@Fiona, were the resumes all external? Reviewing 107 resumes is a huge waste of a managers time.

I work with a GP who did the same as you when he came to Canada. He was honest about his prior work and similarly, he didn't lose his MD, he just wasn't able to practice and the diploma RN program was a quicker way to get work in healthcare and get some income while he plugged away at meeting the requirements for practicing as an MD here. Which he is now doing. Anyway, I think being honest is the best way to go.

These were internal applicants. My manager is the master of time wasting and picking the worst possible applicant for a full time job.

Here the internal applications are screened by union seniority, the top three are interviewed and the most qualified candidate is selected.

That's how it's supposed to work here but she always manages to pull ins someone really unsuited for the job and somehow they score best on the interview or make a better impression.

There have been more than one grievance over her hiring techniques.
