Why have a collection of CVs/resumes as opposed to having just the one CV? By Matthew Coppola
There’s a saying “It’s good to keep your options open” and how true that is, especially when it comes to searching and applying for suitable employment.
Some job seekers opt to have a collection of different CVs that they can use in applying for work, and there are many reputable professional resume writers that can help with this.
Often, we find ourselves out of a job and not sure what to do. There are a few different roles, perhaps in related or completely different industries that we know, after reading through the employer’s requirements and selection criteria, that we can do the job. (By the way, if you do find a job that asks you to address a set of key selection criteria, Australian employment services firm Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions can provide assistance in addressing them for you.

And, if you find that the job description is fairly uninformative, there’s an article I have written on about how to deal with uninformative job descriptions.
In fact, having a one-page CV can be powerful too in terms of getting straight to the point about your knowledge and experience, as well as providing the employer with a brief page to read.
So, having multiple CVs for different jobs can be helpful because you can apply for more jobs and therefore increase your chances of gaining suitable employment. That’s right, you’re keeping the options open. The same goes for your cover letter.
And, once you secure a job interview then fantastic!
