Resume Quick Tip: Tailor Your Response to the Job Posting
As part of Monster Career Advice’s Update Your Resume Week, we’re featuring a daily Resume Quick Tip from Monster Resume Expert Kim Isaacs.
If you're responding to a job posting, pay attention to the information the employer asks for. Review the job requirements, desired qualifications and special requests such as salary information, and customize your resume and cover letter to address these key points. You will stand out as well as prove the opportunity is important to you.

Here's what I would like to know -- So I've updated my resume, and submitted it either online or in person. If I don't get a response, can I contact the employer to check on the status? In my area, I did that, and they thought I was nuts. Everyone wants to communicate via e-mail, and not many want to actually talk on the phone. Why?

Not sure where you come from but I usually enjoy an email with a phone follow up.

I wonder if you have any advice about tweaking the resumes for us older people who are finding themselves back out on the job market?
If the economy keeps heading south and housing prices tank, older folks might be driven back into the workplace... scary stuff. I ran across this Retirement Living TV video on people doing this either for fun or necessity: encouraging I guess!
