I teach people how to create a master file that allows them to have a very specific, targeted resume in minutes when they need it. The book is on Amazon -- it's Hand It to 'em on a Platter.
The idea is that generic resumes don't do the best job for people and, in fact, show a lack of interest in the specific job and a lack of respect for the time people took to describe what they wanted to know about. Creating the master file is the hard part. Using it from then on is a snap.
