Build an Inventory of Your Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and Experience to Showcase Your Accomplishments and to Show Your Potential to Deliver Value
The goal of your resume and cover letter is to make the reader want to interview you.
What do you have to offer a prospective employer? Probably more than you anticipate.
Create a resume inventory focused on capturing the depth and breadth of your strengths, knowledge, skills, accomplishments, and experience that could be of value to prospective employers. Many skills are transferable, so the more items you can identify, the greater the opportunity to match their shopping list of needs. Details are important to create the most comprehensive inventory. Inventories do not have page limits. Think of this as the toolbox you bring to work with you.

Customizing your Resume
Refine Each Resume to Package “Product You” Aligned With Each Target’s Specific Identified Needs, Their Business Strategy and Their Organization’s Goals.
Consider each job description as that organization’s ‘Recipe for Success’ for the role they are filling. Each description is a list of the preparation they expect for a qualified candidate, the required or preferred ingredients (Knowledge, Skills, Experience) they expect in the candidate, and the measured depth of each required or preferred ingredient.
Your targeted resume is one tool to help the Hiring Manager see how well you specifically match their recipe. Your ability to communicate that you are the most cost-effective match for the items on that manager’s shopping list will strongly influence whether you are called for an interview. Describe how you have completed similar assignments better, faster, and cheaper than your competition documenting the value of your deliverables when possible. This information is the heart and soul of a great resume. If you are pursuing more than one basic type of job, for example, sales OR marketing - have a resume for each job type. They require very different skill sets.
