Being a resume writer, I couldn't agree more. Catching up with those words is multitasking. However, people who write the job posting may be someone other than the hiring manager. if they put these words as priorities in the job posting the applicant must use them in the resume or it decreases their odds of being pulled by applicant tracking systems. Talk about a "Catch-22!"

f you decide to use Pinterest as a resume or portfolio tool, you have two options: create a board or whole account to showcase your skills. If you create a board, it will be one URL and one stream with all of your resume/portfolio items.

What your best option is will depend on your profession and experience level.
