Career success tool: Read job descriptions in an active, intentional manner to customize your applications well


Career success is about paying attention to details. When we read the job description carefully and comprehend it well, the customized resume and customized cover letter shows that. Actively reading job descriptions also prepare us for the interview.

‘Strategies for Active Reading
  1. Circle and look up the definitions to words you do not know or cultural references that you are not familiar with.
  2. Underline the thesis or main idea.
  3. Ask questions about the text. … 
  4. Make connections between your own life experiences or knowledge and the text. … 
  5. Find patterns within the text.’
