- Address the needs of the position rather than trying to list every accomplishment in your life
- Use key words from the position description in your resume
- Organize your resume so that the most important information for the position is listed first
Using a generic resume that you send out for every position is poor use of your time. You must convince the hiring manager that you are a good candidate for "their" position. The use of key words and addressing the position requirements will do just that.
