TAILORING See things from the recruitor’s perspective- which is why it must look like it has been tailored for this application Point out what makes you rather ddifferente, more fit than others for the characteristics of that particular job Remember tailoring it’s also closely linked to the rule of summarizing. The point of summarizing, as much as that of tailoring is that it leaves your wanting more.
WAYS TO ENSURE 1 - both tailoring and cutting unnecessary part is asking “so what?” does this make me different, stand out ? 2 – you should write max 2 lines what the job was about. But you should also mandatorily add what you brought to that particular job, what was your added value.

Focus on their relevant, their match with the job. For this purpose do a search on the net, what are the requirements of that job ? lso on websites, not just the official site in question. Achievmenets a) money saved b) ionitiatives that you have introduced c) processes you’ve improved d) save time and money for the company e) recommandations by peers and managers f) added value / made a difference g) increase customer satisfaction h) communicated a difficult point i_) outperformed your peers j) exceeded expectations Also remember use language which has a particular kidn of power. A strong verb – initiated, organized etc. if possible name well known organization. Other words- identified, achieved, created, augmented, intiaited.

not suggested enhancement but devised improvement So match your achievements to his requirements Match your tailoring to the company’s language. 1 MISTAKES attract more attention. it will get lost.
