Resume Best PracticeImportant details
Be sure to write your resume for the specific position, rather than submitting one that’s generic. Include the name of the prospective employer and the position you’re applying. Be sure to include details you gathered about the company and the position. This will give the reviewer an indication that you took the time to get to know them…thus illustrating your seriousness.

One thing not to say in a job interview“I don’t have any questions.”
If you don’t have any, it tells the employer than you’re not very interested in the position or, just as bad, you weren’t listening to their comments during the interview. Show that that you’ve done your homework about the company and position. Have questions prepared. These may include wanting to know more about the details of the job, the department you’ll be working in, your prospective supervisor’s management style, and the culture of the organization.
