    So what do you need to know in order to get started on adapting your CV to the job you are interested in?
    Find the Connection
    Obviously there are some good reasons why you want the job but there also have to be some equally good ones as to why you are right for it. Do you have the experience, the skills or the qualifications to do it? Knowing that you are “just right” for the position isn’t good enough, as you won’t be able to convince anyone of this on paper. Maybe you could do so in a face to face interview but you need to work out how to do a resume that will get you through to this stage. Maybe there is a bit of a link with an old job you did a while back or some courses you took a few years ago? These are the connections you need to root out and highlight.
    Do They Expect Professional or Informal?
    This is a really tricky point, and it is all about whether the employer expects a formal CV or something a bit lighter. In general terms, you should almost always stick to the stiff, formal style but there may be instances in which you can see from the job advert that they want to see someone with personality. However, if you are in any doubt keep it formal.
    There is no point having just the one resume which you use for every single position going.
