Always be sure to personalize and customize your resume so it reflects your skills and abilities and connects them with the jobs you are applying for. Your finished product should be a unique reflection of what you can bring to the job -- not a thinly revised downloadable template. It’s also a good idea to get into the habit of customizing your resume for every job application. Even if you’re applying for similar roles at different organizations, each employer will have its own requirements and priorities.
By using the advice found in this guide, you will know how to create a professional resume to apply for any job. But wouldn’t it be great if the jobs came to you? During your job search, you will create numerous customized resumes for different positions. Each of these customized versions will be adapted from a “master” resume. This master resume should not only serve as the basis for different variations, but it should also be the document you widely share through different channels. A master resume can be used on a personal website, uploaded to social media profiles (E.g.: LinkedIn), posted on job networking websites, or handed out at career fairs. Your resume will already have attractive content and an appealing format taken from a resume builder, and this can catch the attention of recruiters looking to fill opportunities.
When applying for a job, consider the employer’s standpoint. He or she wants to know “Why should we hire you?” A resume goes a long way towards answering this question, but it isn’t the only step. First, you have to encourage a recruiter to actually review your resume. This is the purpose of a cover letter. Assume that the potential employer will read your cover letter first and your resume second. The letter is an introduction to who you are and why you are the best fit for the position. Therefore, your letter offers a preview of your resume by providing a few of its highlights.
