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.
