By On Jan 05, 2018 Resume
Do not let your resume go on longer than one page. If you take a look at a few different resume samples – you will see that all of them are typically one page or less. Take out anything that your employers wont really care about, like how you volunteer for your daughters Girl Scout troupe. Only include volunteer activities if they are relevant to the type of work you do.
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.
If your resume does its job, you will be getting a call for a job interview. The key to a successful interview is preparation. That means learning all you can about the company and position, preparing answers for common interview questions and knowing your own career story inside and out. A job interview can be an intimidating experience for anyone – even more so for someone headed in for their first ever job interview. The best thing you can do to calm your nerves is be well prepared.
