As someone who actively looks at these listings daily trying to find jobs, just seeking out keywords really isn't the best approach here.

Most job listings in software will list something along the lines of: "Experience in one or more of the following languages" - even ones they don't use at the company, because they know a dev can transition from one language to another.

Java just so happens to be a very common language in CS in schools in the past decade or two, with python being one of the main languages now. So job postings, regardless of what the job is ACTUALLY for, will list these jobs, because they know the dev can transition into their environment.

I agree with you Vincent. But consider this project as a big picture of what companies want.
