Resumes and cover letters go hand in hand. In fact, it is the job of a cover letter to get an employer interested enough in you as a candidate to take the time to look at your resume. Your cover letter should focus on just a few skills and accomplishments that are the most relevant to your target job. It should be succinct, include easy to scan bullet points to call out information and should always be customized to the specific job posting you are responding to.
Employers both large and small are increasingly turning to technology to help vet job candidates. Enter the applicant tracking system – a software application that looks for key words and phrases on resumes to identify applicants that are a potential fit. Chances are that an ATS is going to scan your resume before a person ever takes a look at it.When you are attempting a career change, your resume should highlight transferable skills and experience. This article offers several tips for crafting a career-change resume.
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.
