How to Match Your Resume to Every Job You Want [Infographic]

When it comes to resumes, too many job seekers are still taking the one-size-fits-all approach. For them, it’s almost like going back in time when we went to Kinko’s to make 100 copies of our resume!

On the other  hand, the best job seekers know that each application submitted must be tailored to each job and company. They know to use the job description as a guide for customization. And they know that to get past the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and into the hands of a real human being, their resume must contain the right keywords.

For those of us still learning exactly how this all works, we present this outstanding infographic from CareerBuilder. Here, you’ll learn exactly how, using the job description provided by the employer, to customize your resume… and win the job interview.

Use this as a guide, and see if maybe you don’t get called in for just a few more interviews than you did with the Kinko’s version of your resume!
