Quick Tip #83: Is your CV a Jack of all Trades?
March 15, 2014
Some resumes try to be all things to all people, packing in as many different aspects of the person's experience as possible in the hope that an employer will find something they like when they read it. You may be tempted to do this because you are worried that you will leave out that one fact that would have gotten you the interview. The danger however, is that you will drown the reader in a cascade of information, much of which may be completely irrelevant to the hiring manager's vacancy.
The truth is that the incidence of jobs that depend on a person having just one specific skill are so rare as to be irrelevant for consideration. For almost every job out there the correct approach towards resume information is conciseness, meaning only including details that help your case. Every item in your resume should sell your abilities as an applicant. Question everything you have included and assess it objectively - "Does this strengthen my application?" If not, then take it out and be ruthless.
