Last month I promised to share some tips on tailoring your resume to the job you want, not the one you have now.

One tip is to review the posted job requirements to make sure you’ve highlighted them in your resume. It can be really helpful to use the keywords from the job description. Adopt the vocabulary of your target role. This not only helps get you through any algorithms, but it highlights those aspects of your experience you want to be noticed.

You want to make it easy for the reader to imagine you in the role.

Create a basic resume and then create tailored versions for each role you apply to.

Don’t just describe what you do but highlight the results and quantify whenever possible. Profits, revenue, savings, customer retention, satisfaction, efficiency, size of team, etc.

When you get to the interview be positive and tell the story of why, even if you haven’t done this exact job before, that you are up to the challenge. Highlight your track record of learning quickly, scaling rapidly and express excitement about the opportunity and the value you will add. 

Stay safe,
