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.
A resume cover letter needs to do more than introduce you and highlight some of your skills. It needs to be engaging, well crafted, and well researched. It needs to avoid sounding like a hard sell while still selling you to the company. If a resume is a list of your accomplishments, then its cover letter is where you get to tell the story of how you achieved those accomplishments. Use it to explain how your experiences will benefit the company. Tell the potential employer why this job is important to you.
A well-crafted resume is the foundation of a successful job search. It is through your resume, after all, that you make your first impression with a prospective employer. And if it is a good first impression (and if you are a fit for the job), chances are good that you will be called in for an interview. So what makes for a good resume? The answer to that question may vary based on your particular career situation. But in general, effective resumes are succinct and easy to skim. The should include a professional summary that highlights your skills at top, followed by sections that touch on work experience, relevant skills and education.
