Generic resumes are liked more
If you want your resume to be the unique and the best one in the eyes of the recruiters then you should be very clear and descriptive about each and every thing you mention.

Be what you are and don’t just show off, in simple words mention all the qualities you are having but don’t mention much as this may lead you making a robot in the eyes of the recruiters. It should also speak about the individual industry problems and how easily you have gained an experience in dealing with clients, loyalty, profitability, efficiency etc from your past job.
How can you help recruiters with their clients?
