In times of tough job markets, getting invited for a job interview can be like winning a lottery. It is often said that “resumes are your ticket to job searching success.” Are your resumes ready to land you that ever-elusive job interview?
Yes, you read that right. Resumes plural. The days of one size fits all resumes are long gone. Your resume needs to be a living, breathing document that can customize you for each job opportunity.
You won’t win a lottery if you don’t have a ticket and you are unlikely to be invited for a job interview if you don’t have a dynamic, effective resume that features you as the solution to a problem. Your resume is your ticket that leads to being invited for an interview where you can expand upon your value.
