Dear Experts, I have been customizing every resume I send to out to match specific job descriptions. I just found out I sent two different resume versions to the same company. Do you think they'll disqualify me once they notice what I've done? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @kgrantcareers Q#165 No u would not be disqualified. As long as your mainstays r consistant - job title, dates, company worked - u r good. @heatherhuhman: Q#165 Quality matters over quantity when it comes to your job search. Draft a plan & share it w/your parents. @jtodonnell Q#165 Doubt they'll notice, BUT if they do, explain each is valid & meant to show your strengths for each job. @juliaerickson Q#165 Big place may not notice; sml place cd think u updated rez; if interviewd, b prep 2 ans Q re signif diff. @heatherhuhman: Q#165 Agree w/other experts, but be careful not to appear unfocused in your job search. (Know what you want!) @gradversity Q#165 Yes, if they catch it. However, they may not even notice given the volume of applications that employers get. @DebraWheatman Q#165 Depends. R U qualified for both positions? Possible that they might not notice. They might consider u for either. Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
