Tailoring your resume
To demonstrate that you are serious about a particular role, invest some time and energy in making your application meaningful.
Employers see a lot of resumes and find it easy to identify those that are part of a standard mass job application, by tailoring your resume, you allow the employer to quickly establish your suitability for the role. You can do this quite simply by picking out key requirements from the job advert and addressing them prominently in your resumes list of responsibilities and achievements.
Make sure that you demonstrate the difference your skills, qualifications and training have made to the organisations for which you have worked.
Before sending your resume off, do a final check and remove any information that is irrelevant to the advertised role.
