This might come as a surprise, but employers aren’t in a position to tie your experience to their needs!

If you’re qualified to solve business problems, and have the work history, training, and special abilities to do so FOR A PARTICULAR JOB, then write your resume around THAT JOB.

Don’t throw in any “extras,” because this is almost of no use to the reader–who no doubt needs a professional that can fill a specific role.

Think about it: if you were hiring a Sales Director, and received a resume from a candidate who noted skills in operations management, IT, and training, what would you think?

If your job hunting activity includes a resume that doesn’t specify your career goal, you may very well find that waiting for interviews will become your main activity.

For examples of branded, targeted resumes, be sure to look here–and check back often for new updates.
