The 2 Types of Resumes you MUST Have: Master Resume and Target Resume.
Briefly, here is explained the Target type of Resume:
The target resume is one that's tailored for a specific job. A job seeker might easily have a few target resumes if he or she is seeking a few different types of jobs.
How to Create Target Resume
Keep in mind that each of your target resumes should be tailored to a specific job or type of work. Starting with your master resume, here's how to convert it into a target resume.
1. Know what job you're targeting. For example, Executive Chef at Hotel Crazy Horse.
2. Identify the keywords that define your job objective. You can get this information from job posts on the company website or by conducting an online search for the type of work you seek.
3. Make a copy of your master resume and name the new resume file for the target resume you're creating.
4. Get the right keywords in your target resume. If any are missing from #2, find a way to get them in there.
5. Delete statements (even sections) that are not relevant to your job objective. In some cases, this may reduce the length of your resume quite a bit.
6. Adjust your professional title at the top of your resume so that it more closely resembles the job this resume is about to target. For example: Executive Chef.
7. Tailor your Summary section so that it contains only qualifications for your target job. For example:
9. Write achievement statements that focus on the relevant parts of each job. Focus on the same skills you would use in your target job for that resume. It's fine to leave out tasks that don't relate to your target objective.
Review your target resume each time you use it to be sure it's tailored for the specific job you're going after.
