Job Search Tip:
How many versions of your resume (CV) do you have? If you have just one version, it may hurt your chances of getting the job you want! Why have more than one version of your CV? Try keeping three versions of your resume, each one with a slightly different set of keywords related to your career or profession. However, be sure that your CV contains only accurate information, and make sure that it is a truthful depiction of your career history. Switching around keywords is OK as long as the essence of your CV remains the same. When you find a job listing that interests you, look at the key words in the job description, and then pick the version of your CV that is the closest match and send it in to the recruiter or to your staffing agency that posted the job. By matching your CV version to the requirements of the job opening, you have significantly increased your chances of getting to the next stage of the job hunt, i.e. the interview!
