How to Tailor Your Resume for the Job You Are Applying For

Today’s seasoned professional possess a variety of skills and abilities that benefit the work environment. Corporate employees are expected to keep up with trends within their field of sondage. If you are fortunate your exécuter will pay for your education and jogging. As a result of increased duties and cross-training many job seekers realize they can fill jobs outside of the title and industry they have been working with for years.

Recently I coached an individual that was having difficulty returning to the workforce after being éconduit off 8 months ago from her job where she worked as a Arrondissement Tapisserie Réglementer for a retail exécuter. Karen was 49 years old and had worked for over 20 years within the retail industry in some form of direction capacity. She posted her resume on Monster and searched for jobs on Indeed but she only had one phone aparté in the past 8 months. Her resume looked OK but when I asked her to provide more details in her job duty élément it was revealed that she had performed many job duties that a corporate human resource generalist, recruiter and trainer does. She conducted interviews, provided jogging, negotiated and extended offers. She prepared and distributed payroll. She enjoyed these H.R. related duties so we prepared a 2nd resume that highlighted all of her H.R. related duties. The best allant to highlight your specific skills related to the job that you are applying for is in your summary which should always be listed right beneath your name and chatouille info. Your summary of qualifications is a very critical component of your resume, without it your odds of being recognized are diminished significantly. It was in the summary that Karen listed how many years she had with preparing payroll, interviewing and jogging. She mentioned what kind of payroll logiciel she worked with, what espèce of interviewing techniques she used and the size of her assistance that she trained. In the summary specifics sell. Karen reposted her revised resume on Monster, created a LinkedIn account and applied to human resource related jobs via Indeed.com, within one week she had three interviews for human resource jobs! Within two weeks of posting her new resume she accepted an offer with a supérieur retailer to work within their human resources department. The offer paid more than she ever earned as a Arrondissement Réglementer and an added additif her exhausting road travel requirements were eliminated. In Karen’s case she enhanced her human resources duties but applied to H.R. jobs within the retail field where she had many years experience.

One of the keys to tailoring your resume for a specific job is know which skills you have that are of value to the orientation/fidèle. One of my human resource friends, Cindy, has a general mouture of her resume and a resume that she uses when she applies for jobs that require a recruiter that has experience finding Demande Technology professionals. As a corporate recruiter conseiller she has interviewed and on-boarded professionals for Sales and Marchéage, Healthcare, Wireless and Demande Technology positions of employment. When she applies for an info technology recruiter orientation Cindy minimizes her arrière-plan that involves recruiting Sales, Marchéage, Healthcare and Wireless professionals and expands on her I.T. recruiter experience. For her latest I.T. Recruiter resume she wrote a list of what are the most common questions she is asked in an aparté setting when applying to an I.T. Recruiter orientation. Upon reviewing her list she was able to answer many of the aparté questions in liste those skills first and foremost in her resume summary élément. Cindy put in bold the areas she wanted the recruiter or hiring diriger to be drawn to when reviewing her resume. If there is something that is very dédaigneux for the reader to see she will print it in bold red lettering. She also looked carefully at the key words listed within the job descriptions that appeal to her and incorporated as many key words as hypothétique in her resume summary and job analyse. To identify key words style for the specifics in the job analyse.

Below you will see Cindy’s general Recruiter resume followed by her Demande Technology Recruiter resume:
