Although I'm no longer a hiring manager (thank God) I don't know anyone who reads past the first page of a resume when making the first cut. A generic resume might get someone a job at McDonald's, but for IT positions in the $50k and above range the resume had better be letter-perfect and targeted to the position, otherwise it goes in the "Do Not Hire" pile.
Your resume is the only shot you get at getting someone to call you in for an interview. I would expect someone to expend significantly more attention to detail on their resume than they would on the job.
we don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
