Here i will discuss about resume examples with regard to many different employment scenarios. Before you begin writing or even bringing up-to-date your own resume, review the good examples for getting ideas for your own resume.

Job Search with Tailored Resumes

If you are unemployed or looking to leave your current job, then you probably spend a lot of time on job sites applying for the various positions; however, you could see better results by working smarter instead of harder.

All too often job-seekers use a scatter-gun approach to their applications, measuring good and bad days by how many applications they send out. On one level it makes sense - the more jobs you apply to, the greater the chance you will get at least one interview.

The problem with this approach is that it can lead to wasted efforts as you apply to jobs you aren't suited for with a resume that does not show off your skills and talents. You may find you get a much better response rate by applying to fewer jobs and using that extra time to tailor your resume.

Why is it so Important?
We all know there is fierce competition for jobs at the moment. HR administrators can often receive thousands of resumes for a single position. The more time you spend ensuring your resume ticks all the boxes, the more likely you will be given greater consideration for the role. You should always make sure anything that is asked for in the job opening is featured prominently in your resume.

The very same experience can be detailed in different ways, depending on your intended audience. For example, let's say you have served in the military. When applying for a job in security, you would likely list many details about your military experience.

On the other hand, if applying for a management role, the way you should detail that experience is very different - you want a more civilian resume. You would definitely still talk about your service, but you would focus more on your leadership skills, your experience in managing others and so on.

I Already do This!
You may think you already tailor your resume to the jobs you are applying for. For example, you may have one resume for retail jobs, one for office work and so on. Yet, you're probably still making the same mistakes - just to a lesser degree.

Let's look at two different office jobs, each for the role of 'Office Administrator'. One posting stresses the importance of organizational skills and multi-tasking, whereas the other highlights the need for computer skills. Is the same resume going to be equally appealing for both?

Even if your resume mentions both organizational ability and IT skills, you will not be able to give them both the level of detail required for just one of those postings, leaving you missing the mark in both cases.
