At a glance, this person needs to see what they’re looking for or else your resume will hit the bottom of the pile, or worse, the paper shredder.

The simple tools provided below turn any SAS Job resume into a targeted sales weapon. The first visualization displays the words that occur most commonly among 450 SAS job postings from SASJobs.BlogSpot.com and SASJobs.com .

These Visualizations work best in Fire Fox    ————-      Make sure to have Java enabled
