Today's job market is extremely competitive. For every open position you can expect to compete with dozens of other applicants at a minimum. Sometimes even hundreds. Managers cannot afford to interview everyone, so they generally select 5 - 10 of the top candidates. How can you make the cut?
- 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
