Obsess over customers: when given the choice between obsessing over competitors or customers, always obsess over customers. Start with customers and work backward. – Jeff Bezos
A resume is a marketing tool in which the content should be adapted to suit each individual job application and/or applications aimed at a particular industry. The transmission of resumes directly to employers became increasingly popular as late as 2002. Job seekers were able to circumvent the job application process and reach employers through direct email contact and resume blasting, a term meaning the mass distribution of resumes to increase personal visibility within the job market. However the mass distribution of resumes to employers can often have a negative effect on the applicant's chances of securing employment as the resumes tend not to be tailored for the specific positions the applicant is applying for. It is usually therefore more sensible to optimize the resume for each position applied for and its keywords. In order to keep track of all experiences, keeping a 'master resume' document is recommended, providing job-seekers with the ability to customize a tailored resume while making sure extraneous information is easily accessible for future use, if needed. The complexity or simplicity of various resume formats tends to produce results varying from person to person, for the occupation, and to the industry. It is important to note that resumes or CVs used by medical professionals, professors, artists and people in other specialized fields may be comparatively longer. For example, an artist's resume, typically excluding any non-art-related employment, may include extensive lists of solo and group exhibitions. Interestingly, when employers review a resume they typically only spend ten to fifteen seconds, therefore the top half of a resume is the prime real estate for important information. - Resume
A curriculum vitae is a written overview of a person's experience and other qualifications. In some countries, a C.V. is typically the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview. - Curriculum Vitae
