Is there any point in getting small qualifications that are unrelated to the job you're applying for and what does that tell the employer?

For example, is there any use to a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification specifically on a resume if you aren't applying for a job teaching English? Does it look any better on paper?

I have all these questions, can you help me?

Why is it important to not use the exact same words on your resume, especially for different jobs you're applying to? and what would be the best way to keep searching for jobs after not getting hired for the first few times? What are some things to remember when being approached by an issue your boss has with your efforts? When putting in effort to satisfy your boss and the company, is it also important to make sure it's fulfilling you as well? How would you know if you've found a job that approaches not only the company's qualifications but also your own? (ex. time management, distance, pay, etc)
