Edit your application to fit the job you’re applying for. I learned the hard way once. I filled out an application at the last minute and they didn’t call me in for an interview. That threw me off.

I should’ve paid more attention to the details. Suppose I want to apply for a job online but how… Go to the library! They have computers there. Or check out the employment office, the same place where you apply for unemployment, they have computers there too. In fact, the unemployment office has employment counselors to help. And VR!
