By On Dec 31, 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.
This concern is worth considering. Recruiters and hiring managers see hundreds of resumes every day. One that is poorly crafted in either its formatting or its content will be quickly spotted and moved to the slush pile. Templates fix the issue of poor formatting by doing it for you. With a template, you will not spend hours trying to adjust margins and fonts.
A prospective employer does not need an exhaustive list of everything you have done in a previous job. When describing your duties at a previous job, highlight your accomplishments and, whenever you are able to, quantify them with hard numbers on your job resume. It is all good and well that you led a team of six salespeople, but it is a lot more powerful to say that sales for your team increased 50 percent under your leadership.
