This is the First Opportunity to Show Prospective Employers if you are Worth of an Interview.
You have only one shot to get an employers’ attention when he is sorting lots of resumes for job interviews. Your first goal is to urge an employer to pull your resume out for a job interview. To accomplish that goal, your resume must be flawless and must incorporate key words describing your abilities and accomplishments as they pertain to that job announcement.
Tip: Do not apply for jobs that you are not qualified for, because chances to get a call for an interview will be unlikely.
It is common knowledge that using one resume for all the job openings that one is applying for doesn’t work. Employers write specific job requirements in their ad’s that must be followed. Once you read that job ad, it is time to research the format and content that will impress the employer at a glance. You already know that your skills and past achievements are critical but you must know how to communicate them in the resume as it pertains to the job announcement you are applying for.
Finally, consider modifying your resume each time you are applying for a job and don’t forget that relying on one size fits all type will not trigger the interest of the recruiting person.
Now, go to the Internet and look at different resume layouts, select the best that fits you and apply for that job.
