Are you spending hours customizing your resume to each job opening you apply for? That must be time consuming. Well Kerry Sandberg Scott wrote another spot-on post we can all learn from. She thinks it’s crazy to customize your resume to each job. After all, your experience is the same so what do you need to change about it? Instead, use your cover letter to highlight how your experience applies to the specific position. But don’t spend more than a few minutes on it! That would just be exhausting. You should check out the comments to her post too – Lots of jobseekers gave their opinions. Feel free to leave yours here!
