student asking question

In a resume, what does "job description" mean? Also, what should I write on the job description?"


Native speaker’s answer


Actually, a "job description" is usually written by the employers! It explains the tasks, functions, and responsibilities of a job role or position and how it relates to the company. What they're saying here is that employers usually have keywords, such as skills or experience that they include in the job description and that they expect good applicants to mention in their CV or resume. Ex: I really liked the job description for that company. I think I'll apply there. Ex: My career counselor always said to have keywords from the job description inside my resume.
