Customizing your resume doesn't mean rewriting it every time you apply for a new job. List all of your experience, skills, and qualifications on a template, then remove irrelevant ones for each new job. You have to customize your resume to the job opening. Targeting your resume to the job shows the hiring manager you're familiarized yourself with the job description and know how to prioritize the most relevant information.

Your experience doesn't change. However, the way you present your experience to a company looking for a detail-oriented candidates versus a company that values communication skill will differ.

Don't add every life experience to your resume! If the job posting doesn't mention certification, then they don't need you to include it on your resume. Use a chronological resume, HR departments love chronological resumes because they:

  • show career progression -can be used by job seekers of all skill levels and industries -are so commonly used that they're easy to understand

Remember that your work experience is your greatest selling point and to choose a font that is easy to read! I hope these tips helped :) #Resumes #Advice #Wordsofadvice #Jobsearch
