I wish finding a job was as easy as putting together your list of past experiences and sending it to each employer only to find your mailbox full of replies and dates to set up interviews, but that's just not how it happens.

These days you have got to not only put your resume together but also you need to tailor it to fit what each company is looking for. Literally using the terms in the job description to help make it through the first round.

By using the same terms the employers use, you are answering the questions they want to know about. For example, if the business is searching for someone with PowerPoint experience. Make sure to mention you are proficient in PowerPoint if it's true.

Where Can I Find Examples?

I reached out to Worksource and asked what would help people get the call-backs and Ricardo suggested making sure that your resume is catered to each specific job you are applying for. Use the same types of words they use in their description and make sure to mention the experience that fits what they are searching for. He also suggested if you weren't interested in coming in to speak with a professional, turn to youtube tutorials on all things job-related. If you struggle with creating a cover letter or want to hear some mock interview questions, there's a video for all of it.

Each cover letter and resume shouldn't be generic, they both need to focus on the exact position you are applying for. I know it all sounds exhausting but if have been struggling to get call-backs. This could be the main reason. There are a lot of people applying for jobs but without catering to the exact position, your resume gets left in the dust.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
