You’ve probably heard the advice to always write unique resumes and cover letters when applying to jobs, but it often seems like too much work. As a seasoned human resources professional, I have reviewed thousands of applications for a wide variety of positions in different industries. While there are always specifics to look for with each job posting, there are certain things that are a constant when it comes to which pile an applicant falls in. Cover letters that are not customized to the position are a big no-no. Resumes that don’t reflect the skills or experience needed for a specific job are a tough sell. Those who know how to write unique resumes and cover letters are very likely to get a closer look.
A quick search for unique resumes and you’ll find all kinds of great ideas. Many templates are free, while others have a small fee associated with them.
