FOR QUICK SEARCHES ON YOUR PC.
1. Add Metadata to your Microsoft Word Files
Right-click a file. Select Properties > Summary Tab.
Now, you find a space in which you can add info on: Title, Subject, Author, Category, Keywords, and Comments.
Title, Category and Keywords are the best fields here for recruiters.
If you click on the Custom tab you can make your own categories but, apparently, the keywords are more eaily found.
2. Searching Metadata
You can use the basic Windows search feature. But Windows Desktop Search (WDS) or Copernic Desktop Search (CDS) are faster.
WDS and CDS find keywords but only WDS is reliable with custom tags.
Google Desktop Search (GDS) does not index keyword metadata.
