It seems that to be successful in many different careers today, it is possible to possess many different skills. Nearly every client that I speak to has enough talent and skill to span at least two career paths!

However, these job seekers should resist the temptation to write a “general resume,” which is the term most people use when marketing all of their skills, and what I call throwing it all out there to see what sticks.

Employers that need to source one particular job type want to see that you convey your qualifications for that role.

My recommendation? Even if you have these great skills, don’t make it harder for the hiring manager to see why they should interview you by giving a too-broad picture of your capabilities.
