Resume Promiscuity and Its Hazards

5. Look for a page or link with the word Careers, Employment, or Jobs in the title. See if your desired job is posted there. (When you're ready, you may even be able to apply directly from the employer's site, rather than from the job board.)

Then, customize your resume and cover letter to address the things that are important to that employer. You don’t have to start from scratch every time. Create one resume and cover letter, then edit and save multiple versions, each dedicated to a specific opportunity.

Take your time, do your homework, and be sure each resume and cover letter you send reflects your enthusiasm for the exact job and the exact employer.

You'll wind up with a superior resume presentation that shows you’re a serious, self-respecting candidate who's not just looking for a quick hire from whoever will have you.

Hiring managers or job seekers: Share your thoughts and experiences on resume promiscuity!
