By On Dec 30, 2017 Resume
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.
Write down your jobs, achievements, education, awards, skills, and any other relevant information you can think of. Look at the job description for clues on what kind of candidate the employer is looking for. What work experiences and skills match that ideal candidate profile? Highlight those selling points in your 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.
