I think you're right about the keyword search. Many companies scan the resumes they receive for keywords to pre-filter them before a person looks at them. For a specific job, they may have the resumes scanned for "project manager", "engineer", "self-starter" or whatever else they think is important. They figure if their critical words don't appear in a resume, it's not worth paying a person to review it.
We will not tolerate intolerance.
