If they knew what the buzzwords _were_, they'd be in sales or marketing.
If they knew what the buzzwords _meant_, they'd probably have better jobs.
I've tried to teach HR people what to look for in resumes, but gave up when I
realized that the knowledge required to find interesting resumes goes way
beyond simple phrase matching.
If you're submitting resumes in Microsoft Word, I wonder if it would help to
add every known buzzword in an invisible part of the text even though it
wouldn't show up when viewed or printed.
