Key words? These guys get so desperate sometimes. In the next to last paragraph of my very long resume, which means I did this long ago, is a short blurb about working on " Improved TOW Vehicle (M901 ITV) based on M113 Armored Personnel Carrier tracked vehicle".

So I get a job email today.

M113 Mechanics Needed

... I JUST got an opportunity for 10-15 M113 mechanics to take on a contract in Iraq ...

It would really be nice if these people would actually READ a resume before sending out this type of email. About 80% of my resume says my jobs were technical writer. NONE of them say mechanic anywhere. Obviously there is one hit on M113 and they ran with it.
