Misrepresenting yourself on your resume can result in a job offer being revoked. Or, if discovered later, it can lead to you getting fired. While you should try to present yourself as the best candidate for the job, you should do it accurately and honestly. Resist the temptation to pad your resume.
Resumes and cover letters go hand in hand. In fact, it is the job of a cover letter to get an employer interested enough in you as a candidate to take the time to look at your resume. Your cover letter should focus on just a few skills and accomplishments that are the most relevant to your target job. It should be succinct, include easy to scan bullet points to call out information and should always be customized to the specific job posting you are responding to.
You do not need to start from scratch every time you send a resume. But it is worth the time to take a few minutes to align your resume with the job posting for your target job. This can include editing the professional summary section at the top of your resume to highlight your skills and experience that are most relevant to what the employer is looking for, or revising some of the wording you use in your resume to match with the language used in the job posting.
