Resume Look – clear presentation – easy to read – comes to the relevant points quickly
Should I tailor resumes?
Yes. Always. Read the job description carefully. Determine the skill set and experience the job order requires and ensure your resume reflects this
Should I include a cover letter that covers the specifics of the job description?
I feel strongly your resume needs to include the specifics of the job descrition. It is not unusual for many to read the resume first. You want to guarantee your message is strong and it is contained in the resume.
If I call you will you help me with my resume?
No. I review resumes for candidates when there is an active job order.
Should I apply for a job if I don’t meet all the criteria?
Great question. The answer is maybe. If you hit most of the major points, you may be a viable candidate. If you lack important skills or experience – submitting your resume might be a waste of time.
