How To: Adjust your resume to the job

Adjust your resume to the job

Some people are hesitant about changing their resume and editing certain things in or out; they feel it's like cheating. It's not. Changing up your resume is perfectly acceptable as long as you don't lie or make false claims about your history. Tailoring your resume is about putting yourself in a context the company feels will suit them the best.

Think about what it is the company is looking for and highlight the best parts of your resume that fit. Reword past job titles to have similarities to what the business you are applying to is looking for. Edit job descriptions to emphasize the most appropriate characteristics.
