Don’t “spray and pray” with your resume

Spray & Pray

MODIFY and make it work for you!
Customization is the ‘word’.

Spray and Pray. What does it mean anyways?

Have you ever done this:

  • Created a resume, a generic one, detailing all your academic-scholarly-extracurricular activities amongst many other things,
  • and just let it out loose to probable recruiters
  • Then sit and wish that you would get a call.

Well my! You do know what Spray & Pray means.

But that’s not how you land your dream job out in the real world though!
You need to do more. Go that extra step.

What you need to do for this is (what you should already be doing anyways, but still)

  • Read the Job Description properly,
  • and customize your CV to match the expectations.

That’s it.

You are ready to Roll 😉
