Usually, we create a resume for specific to one domain and apply for all the jobs to grab the attention of employers. But resume experts advice that applying all jobs with same resume is not suggestible. But here what we have to observe is that all the job applications are not same, so it is mandatory to send different resumes for each application by highlighting the different skill sets. Recruiters will do preliminary search on specific skills, accomplishments and work history. So, you should highlight all these information in an eye catching way. When you are applying for a job, read the requirements of the job application carefully and make changes accordingly. Recruiters always look for a candidate who have equal matching skills but not the candidates who have more skill sets. Include these important points, when you are sending job application for each job. Why you are showing interest to that job? How you will fit for the job? How the role will get match with your career plans
