Hired Resume Service specializes in writing customized resumes. Initially, we ask that you choose a specific title, industry, or focus for your resume. We design your resume, cover letter, and Linkedin profile toward your specific career goals.
However, often our clients are interested in pursuing multiple titles or positions and have questions about how to edit their resumes to match different job descriptions. Normally, this does not require rewriting the entire resume but changing / editing the title, summary, and the keyword section of the resume to match the position you are applying for.
Outlined below, you will find step-by-step instructions and examples on how to edit and customize your resume for various positions.
First, make sure you qualify for the position. Read the required qualifications carefully to make sure you meet all, or most of the criteria.
Change the title of the position on your resume to match the job title on the job posting.
Read the overview of the position description. You may want to add or emphasize some of the main skills listed in the overview and tweak your summary.
Locate the main keywords used throughout the job description (usually listed under the summary of qualifications) and jot these down to add later.
Once you have completed the above steps, you may edit your resume by incorporating the necessary changes.
Following is an example. The top portion of this resume has changed to match two different positions while the professional experience section remains the same.
