A generic resume will get you nowhere in the job market. Your resume would probably just be skimmed over like the hundreds of other resumes on the recruiter’s desk, or the hiring manager wouldn’t take a second glance at it. So, your efforts to land a job would be cut short early on in the game. There are many ways for your resume to keep you on the list of applicants under consideration and attract more offers for an interview. For instance, if you customize your resume for the particular job that you’re applying for, this will make it easier for the manager to choose your resume over all the other resumes. In their eagerness to create a job-specific resume, some applicants go overboard and write the funniest things.
