Tailor your resume
One size does not fit all so it is important to tailor your resume to fit the job you applying to. It is suggested that you have many different versions of your resume to match different companies and positions. After all, each company has certain criteria they are looking for!
Some suggestions include:
- Reading the job description and identifying key words or skills. Then finding ways to incorporate these words or skills into your resume.
- Adapting your summary/objective statement to directly align with the position by mentioning both the industry and job title you are interested in.
- Being selective about which details you include about your experiences. Ask yourself, “How will these details support my application?”
Use Levo Resumé to build and edit your resume on-the-go. Whether at a networking event or in transit, you can create multiple versions of your resume to highlight the most relevant skills or experiences for the position you are applying to.

After gathering this information, be sure update your resume.
