    Nice article and i completely agree, you need to make a CV / Resume for each job you apply for. Call it tailored or targeted it is essential that your CV is aligned to the wishes and demands in the vacancy you are applying for. An easy way to handle all these CV’s if your not a Word expert would be to use a CV engine, for instance like http://www.comoto.com, here you can target everyone of your multiple CV’s, you can import data from Linkedin and export in a wide variaty of CV Templates….
