Although you may consider yourself an Analyst, during your job search you need to think like a salesman . Every interaction with a prospective employer is a golden opportunity to sell yourself. Submitting a resume is equivalent to cold calling a client so stick your foot in the door by connecting quickly with the hiring manager. 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 . Make sure you address each of these terms appropriately in your resume and personal statement. The bigger the word, the more commonly it was used- act accordingly. If you want to drill down even further, click on the layout drop down to increase the maximum number of terms shown.
