A resume should be completely specific to a target job. When you write your resume, only list information related to the job you’re applying for to keep your application short and easy to read.
To write a specific resume:
- include keywords from the job ad
- research the company to learn which of your hard and soft skills, achievements, and work experience are most relevant
- place your most impressive job-specific qualifications in the resume summary at the top of your resume
- put the job title you’re targeting in your resume’s filename
Even if you’re writing a general resume to post on a job site, the information you include should be specific to the type of work you’re seeking.
Here are what you should and shouldn’t include on your resume:
