I always try to tweak my resume and cover letter based on the specific job I'm applying for. Recruiters and hiring managers often set the search terms based on key things they are looking for, and that can help you avoid being weeded out.

I agree with this. It seems to really help me as well.

More than key words, data on how many opportunities created, deals closed, etc. is impressive. For key words/phrases, I like to see things around understanding customers and their painpoints, being able to tackle objections, persistence, team-player, good writing and phone skills

Thank you!

I think understanding a companies ICP is really great, especially in tech. Also just make sure you talk about the tech stack you used at prev roles, and if there were gaps in your experience of that gap that you would like to work with management to identify and find a solution for at the new comp

That’s a good tip

Have you set up a profile on LinkedIn? It’s a professional networking site. You can post a resume and as you do it AI will prompt you with keywords. Additionally I go look at other people in my position and see what words they use in their profile and I “borrow” those words.

Hi fishes,
My friend have cleared Tata Elxsi interview 5 months back and received her offer letter. Still now she haven’t recvd a joining letter. Couple of other friends are also facing similar issue.
Does anyone have any update on this?
Tried mailing to the HR and to their help desk. No response.
Its really disappointing. Even if they are not able to onboard candidates now, the least they can do is aknowledge and respond to the queries.
Hope someone can give more insight onto this issue.
