Did you know that JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was rejected by countless publishers because they thought it was too long? They didn’t even bother to read the manuscript. Little did all those publishers know, they were missing out on the most lucrative book series ever. But as JK Rowling experienced, first impressions are vital, especially when your submission is among hundreds of others. When it comes to the job hunt, you don’t want to be rejected as many times as JK Rowling was (it won’t work out for you like it did for her), so you need to tailor your resume to the people who will be looking at it.
