As an HR professional, you already know the importance of using the right keywords in a resume. Keywords can make or break job seekers’ attempts to gain an interview, as their resumes are fed into a company’s applicant tracking system or other resume scanning tools. The right keywords will get you noticed, while the absence of targeted keywords will often keep your resume from surfacing when you apply for a new job.

Attitude is not about being aggressive or obnoxious. It is about being competent, taking a stand when you have the information and the facts, and not backing down.

Try this to become a better employee and a better person.

Here are some plans for four popular resolutions. You will find that they overlap; so if you're daring, resolve to do all four.

  1. To improve overall health, start with being more active.
