Include Related Job Titles in your Resume Search

Source: eGrabber Newsletters

You might sometimes have the tendency to get stuck by a single title that your client (company) may use to describe a job position. In today's industry, job titles are changing frequently. For example, software programmer, software developer, software engineer, etc. are different job titles for the same job function. So, unless you use all the related titles in your search, you are likely to miss out on some good candidate leads.

One way to find all relevant job titles is to first search the career sites using the (only) job title given by your client. Take note of the job titles that come up. Most sites provide a "View similar jobs" link beside the job titles in the results. Clicking that link will get you a series of similar positions categorized by Freshness, Overlooked, Relevant, etc. Under the Relevant category, you will find jobs similar in content to the position you are searching for.

You can include all such relevant job titles to expand your search.
