Studies have shown that recruiters only spend six seconds reading your resume, so it’s important to highlight the words that will get their attention.
A recent Indeed survey found that when sorting through resumes, tech companies are much more likely to respond to candidates that mention certain skills and job titles.

These are the job titles and phrases that are more likely to get you a call from a potential employer.
1. Python developer (17.9% more likely to be contacted by a potential employer).

“If you are smart and into science, go to medical school—otherwise, get a law degree” was a popular adage when I was an undergraduate. Law school was the shorter, easier route to a stable professional career, and law grads were paid handsomely for their ‘internships and residencies’ compared to their medical counterparts. Legal practice had little connection to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) back then, and law school was a popular choice for undergrads who majored in everything but hard science. The legal industry was booming and so were law schools whose cost—adjusted for inflation—was 25% of what it is now. That’s all changed, and so too has the marketability of a STEM background across multiple industries—law included. Why is a hard science background suddenly attractive to the legal vertical and why are so few STEM products opting for law school?
