Job Seeker Resume

Q: I sent out 500 resumes this past month, and I had no interviews. What am I doing wrong?

A: There could be a number of things wrong but one obvious problem is that it sounds as though you are not customizing your resume for each position.

It takes time to send out a different resume to each employer so most job seekers make one resume and mass email it to every employer. It's painstaking work to make 300 versions, but it gets much better results! If you can demonstrate that you took the time to research the organization, demonstrate your motivate to work for them, and show point by point how you match the job requirements then you will do better than other applicants that don't.

To make this mass customization easier for you, consider adding a cover letter to your resume. Leave the resume itself alone and use a cover letter with a format that is designed to be easily adjusted for each new position you apply for. If you need help, a resume services company like Resume Scorecard will have the expertise to craft a document like this for you.
