Stop Making This Mistake On Your Cv/resume! by AbdulAkpan: 11:01am On Mar 10, 2021
If you are applying for any job, you should use a one-directional resume.

This simply means that each resume you send out there, must focus on only one thing. If you will be taken seriously by hiring managers, then you must adopt this style of writing a resume.

For instance, you have just seen a job advert for the position of a Banking Officer at a commercial Bank and you want to apply because you have 7 years experience in the same role and 3 years experience in Fundraising at an NGO.

The wise thing to do would be to generate a resume that reflects all your experience as a Banking Officer. Leave out all the information about your fundraising experience because the hiring manager is only interested in looking for skills in Banking.

This is why it is important to have a new resume for each job application you are sending out there. If/when you decide to apply for a role in Fundraising for NGOs, you can create a resume focusing on the skills you have in that role.

There is no point telling a hiring manager how good you are in a role that s/he did not advertise for. Instead focus only on the role that you’re actually applying for.
