Member Must-Have Resume Skills and Keywords

Are you interested in improving your job outlook and increasing your salary? How can you demonstrate that you are the most qualified candidate for a Member position? Of course continuing to gain experience working as a Member may be your best qualification, but there are other ways you can also develop your skills, like continuing education or volunteer opportunities. More immediately, however, you can be ready for your next opportunity or promotion by educating yourself about the duties, responsibilities, and required skills of a Member and making sure your resume reflects your experience properly.

In order to do so, you’ll want to know that employers commonly feature Customer Service and Cashier as the most prominent terms in their Member job descriptions, yet those who have held the position of Member and list it on their resume indicate Collaboration and MS Office more predominantly. Do you know what you would list?

We designed the ZipRecruiter Career Keyword Mapper to help you solve this problem and hopefully improve your resume. Using machine learning tools paired with industry research, our Marketplace Research Team helped analyze millions of job postings and resumes to identify the most important keywords related to Member jobs. Our goal is to help you discover opportunities to improve your resume or to help you understand what skills and qualifications you need to be a Member or to advance your career into beyond this role.

Member Resume Checklist

Our Resume Keyword Checklist is based upon an analysis of the most commonly found terms within both job descriptions and resumes for Member positions. Our algorithm helps isolate phrases and patterns to identify the most frequently recurring and reused keywords from each data source, while correcting for uncommon and outlier results. Various heuristic methodologies are then applied to ultimately create two top 20 lists of the most important and significant skills, certificates and requirements found within Member job postings and resumes. We then merge the two lists together and use a combination of statistics and rules-based scenarios to create a list that is audited by the Marketplace Research team, and finally turned into the checklist you see below. Our hope is that knowing this information can help you make your best impression with your next potential employer.

Both employer job listings and resumes from people who’ve held the position of Member tend to always include skills and requirements found in this list. Whether you’ve only got Cooking, Cashier, Documentation, Clinic, Hospital or Customer Service in your background and experience, make sure to highlight the term prominently on your resume. As a candidate you’ll be competing with many others who are bound to have as many as you (or more!) of these common resume keywords highlighted in their application for a job as a Member.

FAQs about Member Skills and Resume Keywords

What are the most important Member job skills to have on my resume?

The most common important skills required by employers are Cooking, Cashier, Documentation, Clinic, Hospital and Customer Service. These skills and requirements are just as likely to be mentioned by employers as well as on resumes of people that held a position as a Member, suggesting that having these keywords on a resume are important for success as a Member. Additionally, employer Member job descriptions list Welfare as a desirable experience, even though Welfare appears 7.13 times less on resumes, suggesting that it's worth considering including this keyword if you possess the experience.

What are the least important Member job skills to have on my resume?

Although you'd probably love to load up your resume with every possible keyword you can, employers tend to look for the things they specify in the job description. Our analysis suggests that highlighting too prominently terms like Games, Scheduling and Facilitation may be something to reconsider. These 3 terms appear 2.53, 3.63 and 4.26 times less frequently, respectively, than in job descriptions for a Member position. This implies that highlighting any of these keywords on your resume may not be a great way to impress a potential employer.

How do I make sure my resume has all of the right keywords for a Member position?

Unless your resume has a good density of the following skills and experience listed, you may not be considered for the role of Member. Make sure to include a strong showing for the following keywords on your resume:
  • Cooking
  • Cashier
  • Documentation
  • Clinic
  • Hospital
  • Customer Service
Additionally employers frequently list the following as desirable qualities in a Member candidate, but they are far less common on most resumes:
  • Welfare
  • Grilling
  • Bartending
  • Food Preparation
  • Patient Care
  • Host/Hostess
  • Basic Life Support
  • Managing Crews
Finally people who held the position of a Member and list it on their resume are adding these terms that are less likely to be noticed by employers. You may want to consider downplaying these terms on your Member application:
  • Games
  • Scheduling
  • Facilitation
