Personal Support Worker Resume Keywords

(This article is a supplement to PSW Sample Resume)

I was updating my resume the other day and I came across a book focussed on "resume keywords". If you’re on this site then you must have some experience using keywords. Basically keywords are the words that you’d type into a search engine. Ie: Personal Support Worker , that’s a grouping of keywords.

With this in mind below is a collection of keywords that you can insert into your resume. You don’t have to use all of these (and you should only use those that apply to your experience) but you should try to get at least a few of these into your skills or experience areas of your resume.
