Can I trust ChatGPT to write my resume? Will it work to land interviews?

QUESTION: What should I look for when targeting a company? And then how do I use that information in my tailored resume?

I would first consider where you have experience based on company size (revenue), type (startup, Venture Capital backed, Private Equity backed, or public), and industry. Once you know where you are leaning into make sure to highlight those attributes on the resume – i.e. add one sentence under each company to explain what they do, estimate annual revenue, type of firm, industry, and if global.

Apply to companies that match your values, for jobs that match your skills and interests. Peruse the job description and highlight words that match your skills, qualifications, and traits. These are your keywords. Update your resume to appropriately include the keywords. Note duties you performed in previous roles and edit your resume to incorporate some of the job posting language.

Compatibility is key to landing a fulfilling job. Start by clarifying your desired career path, work-life balance, and important values. Create a list of 10-20 companies in your target industry and view their websites, including their careers and mission pages, to check for alignment. Look for keywords and themes on their job postings to integrate into your resume.
