@gabek @neauoire @stevenroose Mostly people do this because it's successful. Part of why it's successful is because recruiters use keyword searches in their CV databases. And when I say "use", that sounds as if they do this actively. They don't. The software does it for them.
The tooling here actually looks almost identical to online advertising, and uses similar terminology. A job posting is an ad, and it's run for a period of time in a particular set..
The best conversion rate is got when you can figure out a good match with the target audience, so having a large number of keyword scanned CVs is a good idea.
For the person hunting for a job, it therefore makes sense to stuff their CV with keywords that are associated with jobs they...
But there's often tests. So you need to "skill up" on those keywords.
Recruiting aside, it's also vendor lock in. Companies that produce the kind of product you might list as your skill benefit hugely from the platform effect that comes with having this kind of product; people will effectively advertise for you.
