  • Try to identify the employer's unlisted demands and try to match all his/her requirements to your qualities aptly.
  • Maintain versions of your resume as per your skills. Do not use only one resume to apply for different roles of the organization.
  • Make your resume long enough to contain your knowledge and expertise in detail and short enough to keep it interesting for the reader. Generally, resume more than 4 pages does not get hiring manager enough attention.
