How to Target your Audience

First, analyze and compile a list of skills and qualifications that the employer is looking for in the job description and make another list of your education, college training, past employment, volunteer experience, and interests. 

Then, match your most relevant experiences with the skills that the employer has requested. Then organize your skills and experience into paragraphs that clearly explain how you are a fit for the position. Make your paragraphs address key qualifications like education, work experience and technical skills.
