Would you spend 100 hours to land your dream job? Unfortunately, most people wouldn't; but that's what I recommend. Instead of just blasting 100 generic resumes and cover letters to open jobs, experts agree that you should customize each resume and cover letter for every company you apply to.
So of course that requires that you scour the company's website to understand their mission and company culture. With that information, job seekers can create a cover letter that PROVES to the company why you are a fit.
HR managers know when candidates are just blasting the same generic resume to openings. The long and short of it is that if you don't take the time to show you care about the job, then they will hire someone that does. It's actually not uncommon for good jobs to go to less-experienced candidates (even with less education) because the one who shows they care and are eager are very desirable to HR managers.
So, to do it right, you should set a goal for yourself to send out 100 customized resumes and cover letters. Each one will take you about an hour (with the research). With a 100-hour investment, you have a much better chance of landing the job you really want instead of settling on something that will just get you by.
