Dear ME,

As you have multiple skills, I suggest you build a couple of versions of your resume. For eg, a version for business development and then another version for operations and so on. Each version should highlight your achievements in that specific domain - for eg the BD version should highlight your sales achievements, targets achieved etc. The other skills that you have can be mentioned but the focus should be on the single area that you are focusing in your resume. You can also build a generalist resume for positions that require jack-of-all-trade skills.

Use each version tactfully to apply for jobs. Customise your resume before applying and make sure that you have a cover letter. Happy fixing!
