Writing A Resume - One Size Does Not Fit All

Do not use one “cookie cutter” resume for every job. Always tailor your resume and cover letter to each position that you apply for. In a nutshell, this means emphasizing the skills and experience that will make you appear to be a strong fit for each particular job. Take a look at what the job description specifically asks for, and make sure that your skills and experience are a strong match. Emphasize achievements that match what the employer will want you to achieve in that new job.
