Cloudy with a Chance of Interviews

What's the point? 

The point is that in order to get a human being to pay attention to your resume and application materials, you must often first get a computer to select your stuff for further review. If the computer doesn't see the "right" words in your application, it won't push your name to the front of the stack of applications. 

You can use one of the two word-cloud generators the article supplies, or do a Google search for the phrase "free create word cloud" to get many, many more recommendations.
