    Frequently Asked Questions

    You're a long-time HR Generalist, but you're interested in also targeting jobs specializing in Benefits and Compensation within HR.

Using appropriate keywords and key phrases (pertaining to each unique focus) is the key to building a document that scores well with applicant tracking systems during the online application process.
    When building multiple targeted Resumes for different focuses, the main changes take place in the opening "career profile" section of the document. This is the area which communicates the high level context and focus. Whereas, the body of your Resume (individual job descriptions) may generally remain unchanged on each version. In certain cases, it also makes sense to alter the body to achieve optimum relevancy.
