Your Hired!! The Resume That Will Land You The Job

Every resume should accommodate the position you are applying. The use of a generic resume to send to every job is acceptable when applying for positions within the same industry, but that may not be enough. One of the key things to know and follow in your job hunt is to create a resume according to the requirements of the position. The best way to do this is to review some resume samples within your industry of interest and carefully review the job description requirements to confirm your resume matches the employers needs. It is not acceptable to write a resume plagiarize other resumes you have found through research because the same way you found that resume is the same way other applicants can find that same resume. Always Be sure to make your resume unique to yourself and your experience (but, keep it professional).
