Misrepresenting yourself on your resume can result in a job offer being revoked. Or, if discovered later, it can lead to you getting fired. While you should try to present yourself as the best candidate for the job, you should do it accurately and honestly. Resist the temptation to pad your resume.
Space on your resume is limited. Often including references (or references available upon request) is a waste of valuable real estate. If the employer wants references, they will ask. Check out this article for more on why you should not include references on your resume and, better yet, what you should include instead.
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.
