There are subtle messages in your resume. It demonstrates your ability to communicate. If your resume doesn’t stand out, you not only haven’t done well, you’ve communicated about it poorly.

 A resume demonstrates your ability to put together a relevant document. It demonstrates your ability to pay attention to details. It communicates what you think is most important to the hiring manager.


If you’re not getting the results you want, you’re not putting in the effort to customize your resume.
