Ask yourself: When you figure out what needs to pop, go back to those other resume samples you reviewed and look again at what stands out and why.
Employers are looking for candidates who can specifically meet their needs.
Carefully read the job posting and the employer’s latest news to customize and tailor your information in a way that will appeal to them directly.
Update the resume to reflect not only new information about your and your career highlights, but also anything that might make the resume look dated if left unchanged.However, on the resume you want to spell words out (at least on the first mention).It’s especially important to watch out for keywords that define the job and the skills that are needed because the ATS may not know to look for a match in the abbreviated form.It’s not enough to simply list job duties and responsibilities.
