Employers absolutely know you can’t fit your whole career story onto two sheets of paper. So, they look for keywords that shout out to them. For sales roles, keywords will be sales, selling, targets, negotiation and so forth. Your resume should clearly state, “This person cares about the role they are applying for.” Also, if a digital paper-sift or online resume search is used, relevant keywords will help your resume rise to the top fast.
