How to Tailor Your Resume to a Specific Job?

The employers will fall for the most impressive resume they read.

True or false❓

If you think creating a comprehensive and impressive resume with all you've done in your career so far will get you a job, you might want to think again.

Before you start rewriting your current resume, it's crucial to have the job you want in mind, or even better – have a specific job description in front of you.

ALWAYS rewrite your resume according to the job you are applying for.

I know, many just skip this part and stick with the general resume, because tailoring a CV to every job description requires time and effort. But this is a mistake you simply can't afford.

Why tailoring your resume is the key to an interview and, hopefully, a job offer?


🟢 Employers don't care how impressive you are if they can't see immediately how your experience and results match the specific job – showing the expertise and skills they are looking for is the only way to go

🟢 They usually want you to hit the ground running – aligning your career results with the job requirements will show them you can do that

🟢 Focusing only on the relevant achievements will persuade the hiring manager that you're the best candidate for the position, and you'll secure the interview

So, how to identify the important parts of the job description that your resume should be based on? And, what does tailoring the resume to the job posting even mean?
