Cover Letter + Resume Tips
What is a Resume
A resume is a short (one or two pages normally) document that you provide to potential employers. It contains basic information about you, your experience and your skills. Obviously, since the whole purpose of sending out your resume is to get a job, you obviously want to present yourself in the best light possible - while of course remaining entirely truthful. It is also essential that you include all the relevant information that a potential employer wants to know including career objectives, professional experiences and achievements, and educational qualifications.
The heading of the resume should contain your name, address and contact information. The body of the resume should be broken into the following sections:
You must also make sure that there are no errors in your resume. Check it. Double check it. Triple check it! Ask your spouse or a friend to check it. Check the spelling, including any company or school names. Furthermore, while it is okay to use some formatting, don't go overboard - format your resume professionally and tastefully - that means no garish colors, no huge text, and stick to a simple classic font throughout such as Times Roman or Arial.
The key thing to remember is that your resume is your sales pitch to potential employers - and you need to sell yourself in the best possible way by showcasing your positive attributes. A great resume really will make you stand-out from other candidates!
