She makes some great points! Your story should always be tailored to your audience, which is why many people have multiple versions of their resume. When you send someone your resume, you are introducing them to your personal brand. Not to get off topic, but also keep in mind that your resume, not matter how compelling is not enough. Networking is so important-both online and offline. People email me their resumes but I still look at their Linkedin profile to see who's endorsed them and who they are connected to, etc. If they dont have a Linkedin profile, it's not in their favor.
