Tailor Your Resume

Most job seekers send a standard, generic resume for every job application. According to JillXan Donnelly, President CareerWomen.com, employers and recruiters pay more attention to tailored resumes that address the specific requirements of the position. "Remember that your resume speaks volumes about you, particularly if you're looking to shift gears into a new field in which you have no directly applicable experience," says Donnelly. "Be sure to match your skills and capabilities plus the personal qualifications that you will bring to the position rather than just industry-specific experience."
