If your resume does its job, you will be getting a call for a job interview. The key to a successful interview is preparation. That means learning all you can about the company and position, preparing answers for common interview questions and knowing your own career story inside and out. A job interview can be an intimidating experience for anyone – even more so for someone headed in for their first ever job interview. The best thing you can do to calm your nerves is be well prepared.
Proofreading seems like a given, but hiring managers still receive plenty of resumes with embarrassing typos and other errors. Do not just dash off your resume and send it. Once you are finished, step away from it for at least a few minutes and then come back and give it a thorough read for mistakes. Better yet – have someone else take a look. Fresh eyes are more likely to find errors.
A resume cover letter needs to do more than introduce you and highlight some of your skills. It needs to be engaging, well crafted, and well researched. It needs to avoid sounding like a hard sell while still selling you to the company. If a resume is a list of your accomplishments, then its cover letter is where you get to tell the story of how you achieved those accomplishments. Use it to explain how your experiences will benefit the company. Tell the potential employer why this job is important to you.
