From Glassdoor: Customizing Your Resume

Glassdoor is a leading global job search and recruiting site. According to an in-depth article written for it by Emily Moore:

“You might have heard before that one of the best ways to grab a recruiter’s attention is by tailoring your resume to each position you apply to. To many people, this is an intimidating idea — after you spend so much time creating a great first resume, the thought of repeating the process for each new job you apply to sounds like a tremendous time-suck.” 

“The good news? Tailoring your resume doesn’t mean having to recreate the wheel each time. No matter what job you’re applying to, there are a number of things you can keep consistent while still customizing others. Here’s a quick run-through on what items on your resume should change for each job you apply to, and what can stay the same.”

“Once you have a solid first resume, you can largely keep the same outline and structure for subsequent applications. For example, on the following resume, you could keep the same top-down format of contact info, key skills, prior work experience, education and additional experience.”

Things to change — (1) Professional Summary or Objective Statement. (2) Career Accomplishments and Highlights. (3) Skills and Strengths. (4) Additional Experience. (5) Layout and Style. (6) Order of Your Work History.”
