Super-Charge Your Resume and Make it 200% More Effective THE BIG LIE The lie is that all you need to do is send out your resume, the same resume, to as many companies as possible and you WILL get hired, simple as that, matter of time. Do you go to the card shop once a year to buy a dozen of the same birthday card and then send them out, one by one, to everyone you want to wish happy birthday to, friends, spouses, children, parents, brothers, sisters? Of course not. If you send the same resume out to a number of different companies for a number of different positions you are doing exactly the same thing as what you thought was crazy a second ago. THE "GENERIC" MISTAKE Hopefully, you are starting to see where I am heading with this. As a corporate recruiter I realized that the resumes that I picked out and then called the candidate were the ones that "matched" the job description that I was recruiting for.

THE INSIDE SECRET After years in various business roles I decided to begin a career in staffing. From an idealistic point of view it suited me well. I got a good feeling from seeing folks get hired and enjoy their new job. It always left me a bit disappointed though when I realized that there were so many others that I felt were capable and qualified but didn't get hired, or even interviewed for that matter. It wasn't for a few years until I noticed that the professional staffing function in most companies was truly just matching words, and occasionally matching concepts. That might be a little simplistic but not by much. By sending out the same resume to multiple job openings you are essentially counting on chance that your resume will match the job requirements. Chance isn't good enough if you want or need to get a job. GET HIRED NOW As I write this, January 2011, there are clear signs that the job scene is getting better.
