Customize Your Résumé for the Biggest Impact

Employers are having difficulty matching the talent and skills of potential employees with their organization’s needs, so it’s more important than ever to know your audience and cater your résumé accordingly.

Sometimes it’s as simple as adding some additional key words to get noticed: be extremely specific about your skills, and make sure they match the position. But let’s talk about a lesser-discussed tip: how much to reveal about your experience.

There’s a reason employers state what sort of experience level they’re looking for. It might seem obvious that an under-experienced candidate won’t likely win an interview. However, a candidate with too much experience is likely just as disadvantaged. An employer may assume your salary is out of their range or that you will move on as soon as a better opportunity comes along.
