Omitting Jobs from Your Resume
There's no question about it—job seeking is a competitive business in today's economy. In my recruitment work, I sometimes receive up to applications per-job. It is important that your resume be not just well-written, but also tailored to the specific job you're applying for. This can mean the difference between landing the interview and being rejected at the outset.

No one really knows who came up with the rule, but a great many job-seekers still seem to live in fear of this supposed edict.
