Are you spending hours customizing your resume to each job opening you apply for? Sounds time consuming. And Kerry Sandberg Scott agrees - she thinks it’s crazy to customize your resume to each job. Your experience is the same, so what do you need to change about it? Instead, use your cover letter to highlight how your experience applies to the specific position.
