Case Study: Customizing Your Resume To The Company

January 30th, 2013

This case study / example is more minor than Monday’s and Tuesday’s but it’s still really cool.

In 2005 this person (I don’t know the name) wanted as job at Electronic Arts (over $4B last year)… right out of school he sent a pretty weak resume (image at the bottom).

Well, pretty weak except for the Accomplishments sections:

Here’s the whole resume… not even a job at Taco Bell or anything… but the Accomplishments is killer, and written directly for this industry (I’m not a gamer, but I bet those games are EA games).

Are you customizing YOUR resume to stand out, and to directly address the WHY?
