If you are not looking for a job at the moment, it is still important that you maintain your network list, adding to it when you can. You may ask, "Why do I need a networking list when I'm not looking for a new career?" The answer is that networking puts you in a winning position and keeps you "on the inside" with individuals who can make things happen. Maintaining contact with your developed network will allow you to take advantage of any future opportunities that may arise.

Good networking is vital to your job seeking success; always maintain good relationships with your contacts and keep in touch with the new people you meet on your journey. Read the tips at the link.

The data presented in your resume needs to be easy for the recipient to read and understand, make sure they don't have to search for the information.

Create a highly visible and attention-grabbing summary section, located at the top of the first page. You have only five to twenty seconds to grab their attention, making this section critical.

This summary section is the place to include keywords, without making it obvious. You can have the best credentials and accomplishments for the position, but if they are poorly presented, you can easily be overlooked for the teaching job of your dreams.

Excerpt from Article Regarding Higher Education Resume Keywords
Read the full post at the link.

Larger employers tend to use applicant tracking systems to weed out resumes as the initial review. A solid way to pass this initial review is to include relevant industry keywords or buzzwords that are specific to the position you are applying for and are applicable to your skill set. Use the job description to determine what knowledge, skills, and qualifications the employer values and sprinkle those words throughout your resume.

For example, an Adjunct Professor should encompass organizational skills, be an effective communicator, technologically savvy, and support colleagues.

One thing to remember is to build the wording from the job posting into your resume. If the posting states, “individualized lesson planning a plus”, incorporate that into your resume as “Experience in creating individualized lesson plans to encourage full student participation and engagement based on unique learning styles, needs, and goals.”

Take a look at the school website, department page, online job descriptions, and other job postings to help determine some key buzzwords to include.

Using the correct keywords is one of the most important aspects of writing resumes or CVs in higher education or any other industry.
