By On Jan 05, 2018 Resume
A well-crafted resume is the foundation of a successful job search. It is through your resume, after all, that you make your first impression with a prospective employer. And if it is a good first impression (and if you are a fit for the job), chances are good that you will be called in for an interview. So what makes for a good resume? The answer to that question may vary based on your particular career situation. But in general, effective resumes are succinct and easy to skim. The should include a professional summary that highlights your skills at top, followed by sections that touch on work experience, relevant skills and education.
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.
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.
