In fact, what matters most to applicant tracking systems is the uniqueness or “rarity” of the keyword or the keyword phrase, says Ciampi. That is, the keywords and phrases must be specific to a particular job ad. Applicant tracking systems, which “see” all job ads a company has ever published, determine which keywords and phrases in a specific job ad are unique to that job ad, says Ciampi.

Because of the popularity of prior posts regarding Civil Service Positions, The Brentwood CDC has created a handy primer on applying to Suffolk County Civil Service Positions.
Step 1: The Current Openings for Civil Service Positions are found on the Suffolk County Government web site, which is http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov.
Step 2: Hover your mouse over the Government Tab, which will open up a new frame. There’s no need to click on the tab, it should open automatically.
If you see this frame, click on “Civil Service” (It’s been highlighted for your convenience.)
Step 3: Now that you’ve clicked on the Civil Service Link, you should be on the Civil Service Page. You would also be able to reach this link by typing in http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/civilservice.aspx.
Step 4: Once you’ve reached this page, click on the Green Button Titled “Current List of Exams”. This will give you a listing of all the open Suffolk County Government Civil Service Positions.
Tip: It’s always good to check back regularly, as postings are added every few weeks.
Tip: Check the FAQ’s section on the Civil Service page because it contains important information on what an Open-Competitve Exam is, a Promotional Exam, how long lists are open, and how to subscribe to Automatic County Examination Announcements.

How to Decipher Job Ads So You Actually Know What You’re Applying For | Brazen Careerist
Job ads are hard to understand. Different websites have different ways of letting you know whether they are posted through an agency, an employer, or direct marketing.

Brazen Careerist has made a short primer on determining what type of job you’re applying to by looking at the ad. They covered all the bases, helping job-seekers today. Don’t forget, you could also ask the librarians or valuable employees at the Career Center to help you figure out whether the ad is too good to be true. Ask!
