By On Jan 04, 2018 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.
Do not just list all the responsibilities you had at your previous jobs in your resume. Show how you were an asset to the company. The most important thing a future employer wants to know is what you will do for them. Say how you came up with a new idea, saved your past employer money, got a specific result, or anything that is a quantifiable detail.
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.
