So often, Job Hunters are lazy when they submit a resume, why? They send the same resume over and over again, with no tweaks that demonstrate the fit for the role. And then they wonder why they don't get responses. I'm not saying you do that, but a lot of people do. And the problem is you're wasting your time and you're frustrated that you're not getting results or you're not doing the work.

Don't be lazy. Look at the job description or what you've been told about the job. Look at your resume. Make the case only in the document, not later, early in the document because if you're applying for something through a system, it wants to see it early. If you're sending it to the manager, they don't have time to find it.
