1) Different goals at the top
2) Organize experience differently. For instance, for a training
job, put training experiences or documentation first. For a
very technical job, put programming experiences or documentation
first. This is on a chronological resume.

Example:

Goal: To obtain a challenging job in training.
Date to Date Title for Company Name, company address and phone.
Conducted training classes in software. Wrote training
guides. Edited techncial guides. Created icons. Created
database management system.

Goal: To obtain a job combining my technical, training, and writing
skills that will enable me to upgrade my technical skills.
Date to Date. Title for Company Name, company address and phone.
Created database management system. Created icons and
integrated graphics into programs. Edited technical
guides. Wrote training guides and conducted training
classes.

3) Sometimes when I am applying for a job that requires specific
software, I go in and edit the job experience to list the
software within the job, as well as in the list I have
at the end of my resume.
