To get your resume to the right people, and VIEWED by the right people, these are the best ideas that I can share:- Cater your resume to a job. Take a look at the top 3-5 responsibilities, and the top 3-5 requirements/qualifications, and if you have those things make sure that this is laid out in your resume well. And not just in a word bank, but in your responsibilities section. It's also important to note that you should only add these if you have actual experience in the given area.- Once you apply, send a connection request on LinkedIn to both the HR rep/Recruiter and to the hiring manager if you can locate it. This will not always be exact, but if you do some due diligence on LinkedIn sometimes it becomes apparent. If I am applying for a QA Engineer position, I will send a LI request to the Director or Manager of QA, as well as a Technical/Manager/Lead Recruiter. Once they accept, send a concise, personalized message about why you're interested and why you believe you are a fit. You may not be the right fit, but at minimum I am looking at your resume because you took the time to connect and send a message to me. If you do this step, of course make sure you have a LinkedIn profile that is worth showing a potential employer.
