In one of the "power points" column in today's Globe and Mail's Management section, there's a small story about hiring mangers using electronic scanners to rank potential candidates based on the words they used in their online applications.

According to the article, the key words searched for are: problem-solving and decision-making skills, oral and written communications, customer service or retention, performance and productivity improvement, leadership, technology, team-building, project management and bilingual.

If that describes you, maybe your resume should be online?
