Target your Resume to the job you want – and get it! Comoto Resume Manager

Target your Resume to the job you want

Your Resume is probably the most important part of your application to get the job of your dreams. The cover letter will be the place where you convince the recruiter/headhunter/company to read on, and read your entire Resume.

A very good idea will be to target every job application with a tailor-made Resume, if you want the job of your dreams, the employer should also read a “dream of a Resume”.

The basic principle of your Resume is to target it to the job. :

  • Be sure to cover the most important job skills, qualifications, and experience in your Resume.
  • Be certain that most parts of your Resume relates to the job you apply for.
  • Use the same skills, experience, and qualifications description as in the job ad.
  • Ensure that your previous experience is clearly and relevant to the job application.

This is a lot easier to do when using Comoto, you can have several Resume in the system and specialize them to the current application.

You have the basic material available from your basic Resume(maybe your LinkedIn profile), and then you should just adapt that material to the wishes to you dream job. An Outline of the basics in a Resume is seen below:

Professional Summary

The prof. summary is the part where you describe your overall motivation. Here you should describe that the current job would fit into your career choice. This is should show the employer that this job is the next step on your career ladder.

Skills

Skills are mostly seen as keywords in a job add; they are essential criteria’s that you have to have to fill this position. It is not a question if you have them all, most people don’t or just barely, but you must include all the required skills as much as possible. Highlight the skills where your expertise really supersedes the demands highlighted and mention the rest.

Work Experience

Your former work experience needs particular care and you should try to reuse some of the skills or goals explained in the job ad. Explain you experience very concise and clear, write the roles and tasks you had. Be sure to use the same wordings as in the requirements for this job.

Use several examples, and where it is possible show how your skills where developed and refined through your previous work experience. Make it extremely clear that you have gained extra expertise through your previous experience.

Achieved goals

Goals that you have achieved on top of your work experience for each job description are extremely positive, it shows that you aim for the goals the employer puts up and that you are dedicated to the relevant tasks. Try to use examples that are related to the new job application if possible.

Educations / Qualifications

A lot of job ads describe a certain set of required qualifications. You should try to provide qualifications that meet these requirements. Sometimes you have similar qualifications, try to convince them that they are good enough. Either do it by email beforehand so that you are sure that your qualifications are good enough. This also gives you the opportunity to have a talk with the employer before you send your Resume.

11 steps to a successful Resume

11 steps to a successful Resume

Your Resume is like a showroom; it should display your qualification to recruiter or headhunters as they skim your Resume. How do you make them choose your Resume? And how do the recruiters / headhunters turn a pile of Resume into just a few Resumes, including yours? Follow these eleven simple tips to ensure your Resume is among the few left when the recruiter goes back to his customer and says “I just found the perfect match!”

1. Find the type of Resume wanted

The first thing you should do is to find out what form and style the company wants for the Resume or what form and style is normally used in your line of work. Is it a two-pager, is it chronological? If you don’t know, then just call the recruiter and he/she will happily guide you.

2. Keep it concise

Your Resume should be short and to the point, leave out unnecessary filling. Recruiters don’t want to spend a lot of time on reviewing a long Resume– if you send them an encyclopedic drilldown of your life to date, they won’t find the information they want. Keep it short and to the point and save the details for the interview.

3. Target your Resume to the job

Take the time necessary to adapt your Resume to each position you apply for. Get some background information on company and use the keywords in the job ad to find out which skills you should use and which you should leave out.

4. Personal statement

Tie your experience and work history to the vacant position so that the recruiter / headhunter can see the connection between why he should choose you. This is best done with a brief personal statement to be sure the recruiter / headhunter sees the connection.

5. Leave out gaps

Recruiters’ don’t like gaps – if they spot a gap they will either dig deeper to find out what is this al about (more work for them) or they will just go on to the next in the pile of interesting Resumes. If you have a gap, make a positive thing out of it, give them extra experience or another twist on the gap.

6. Resume must be up-to-date

Be sure that your Resume is always up-to-date, especially if it is an online Resume it must always be up-to-date. Regardless of whether you’re actively job seeking, every time you gain some experience or otherwise have information for your Resume, make the changes right away.

7. No mistakes and misspellings in your Resume

Don’t let the recruiter / headhunter dismiss your Resume just because you made a mistake or misspelled something. Many recruiters / headhunters see these types of mistakes as severe. They say “If you can’t even spell right or made stupid mistakes, you probably haven’t even read the Resume after you wrote it.” Use a spellchecker on the text and have someone you trust, proofread it to get a second opinion.

8. Only the truth and nothing but the truth

Never ever tell a lie in your Resume as many recruiters / headhunter use references and their network to check the facts of your Resume. If you tell a lie and it is discovered afterwards it is a reason to dismiss you and nobody wants that. Many times any inconsistencies are also discovered in the job by a simple Google search or at the interview and there it will be probed if they find any “lies”.

9. Remember numbers and facts

If you can – it is always a good idea to back up your achievements with numbers. Writing your work experience and achievements, don’t just tell the recruiter you increased profit; show them how much: EBIT increased 78% over 2 years, with a growth rate of sales on 30% over the same period.

10. Layout / design matters

Use a Resume template that is in line with your profile. Marketing people can make something very chick and creative, but please if you are an accountant please choose a Resume template that signals the right things. It all depends on the sector and what is normal, don’t use the design to make you standout in a negative manner.

11. Remember to use sector specific keywords

Today Resumes are many times online profiles, or Resumes that will be put into a recruiter / headhunter internal IT systems for indexing and searching capabilities. These systems make use of keywords to search for, just like Google like specific keywords recruiters do so to. Make the keywords 100% aligned with the vacant position and also have some extra in there that can be the extra something to make you stand out from the crowd.
