Why do I need a different resume for every job application?

Recruiters and hiring managers typically receive hundreds of applications per day. To filter out all the applications that do not meet their needs, they use application tracking software that eliminates all resumes that are not tailored for specific keywords included in the job ad. But even without ATS apps, they can quickly differentiate a generic resume copy-pasted and sent to every single company around from a resume tailored to their job ad.

That’s why in your resume, you have to highlight skills and experiences which directly address the company’s needs listed in the job description. To make the cut, you have to send a different resume every time.

In the Zety online resume maker you can quickly duplicate your resume and adjust it to a specific job title in a few clicks!
