Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions

When I read about how to develop my construction resume, I see the word target a lot. What does it mean to target my construction resume?

In any form of written communication, and especially when writing a construction resume, you need to know your audience. You don't tell the same story the same way to your sister and to your daughter. Nor would you tell the story of your working life the same way to one construction employer as you would to another. Targeting your construction resume means telling your story in a way best suited to the specific job you are trying to get.
