Breathe New Life In Your Resume & Avoid Rejection by Revamping it

Greetings job-seekers! We have all been there: sending out dozens of resumes only to be met with the sound of crickets or a dreaded rejection email but did you know that recycling your old CV might be reason for these disappointing outcomes? So let me now share with you how updating your resume can make a world of difference and help you land that dream job in 2023!

Importance of a Fresh Resume Tailored for Each Specific Job

Imagine you are an HR manager and your duty is to sift through countless resumes every day for recruitment purposes. Now, would you give a second glance to a CV that looks like it was created with just biodata, qualification details, hobbies, achievements, and awards? Probably not.

But an updated fresh resume created by a job applicant in accordance with advertised job duties would definitely send message that you are a passionate job seeker, capable of understanding what company is looking for, and are quite much professional. By revamping your resume as per a specific job without recycling it would also show that you have put in effort to stand out from rest of the job applicants and that is exactly what recruiters want to see!

Keep Updating Your CV for Every New Job Application

Once upon a time, i was guilty of sending out same generic resume to every company, and i could not understand why I was nott getting any callbacks. Then, took time to realize that recruiters might be looking for something different and i discovered the magic of tailoring my CV to make it a good fit for each job application and to my surprise it worked and i started receiving interview calls. So, from my experience Here is how it works:

Employers can spot a one-size-fits-all resume from a mile away. When you update your CV as per specific requirements of a job posting, you need to demonstrate that you researched about company, learned about job role, have enough qualifications/skills needed for the job, and are genuinely passionate about the job position.

Keep Up with Resume Trends in 2023

Like fashion, resume trends change over time. What was considered cutting-edge five years ago might be outdated today. Do some research on the latest resume styles and designs to ensure your CV is visually appealing and easy to read while having all essential details specific to the job and employer. Remember, your resume is your first impression, so make it count and do not fall short of it.

Include Right Keywords in Your Resume for Pass-Through ATS

In today’s digital world, many companies use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to screen resumes from thousands of resumes pool and this happens with most multinational companies because for just a few job positions thousands and thousands of job applications are received by them and they have limited staff to review those CV’s and this is where ATS helps them out. These ATS systems search for specific keywords related to job descriptions to filter out unsuitable candidates from suitable ones and then those screened resumes are reviewed manually by recruiters. Therefore, to improve your chances of making it through this initial resume screening via ATS, make sure your resume includes relevant keywords from the job posting.

Lets Roll up Sleeves to Start Updating Your Resume as per job Role

Revamping your resume as per job role might seem like a daunting task, but trust me that would payoff and it is definitely worth it. So, roll up your sleeves and give your resume the makeover it deserves and then if you got an interview call you will thank yourself when that job offer finally rolls in. Good luck!
