Resume Tips - Your Guide To Effective Resume And Cover
Welcome to your Resume Tips Mini Course.
You are about to learn exactly how to create a professional, well written resume
that WILL get you the interview you are looking for...
To begin, make a decision to discard any former knowledge learned about the "rules" of resume and cover letter writing.
People commonly become stuck in "bad" writing habits from a time gone by.
It is almost a certainty that since you last wrote your resume, much has been learned and even more has been changed. This is as it should be, for every day, very creative people are adding to the resume and cover letter writing arsenal.
This ebook is chock full of the most recent and cutting-edge resume and cover letter writing techniques, culled from writing professionals and employment experts.
For years, we have been told that to be most effective, a resume should be only one page. This just does not apply any longer! Today's resume is creative and unique.
Aside from the most essential and key elements, a resume should reflect the personality and need of the job seeker and not be some cookie cutter rendition of what is "acceptable and expected."
Standards in resumes and cover letters have changed dramatically, but only so far as the job seeker has the creative expression and know-how to pull it off!
And that makes all the difference.
Every day, employers read all of the standard resumes that land on their desks
and they all look much the same. They have to read through each and every one
looking for just the right applicant.
But, which one will catch their eye?
Formatting in resumes and cover letters has expanded, too. When you consider that your resume will be your own, personalized form of marketing yourself -- this lends itself to all manner of unique communication and expression.
Again, so long as the essential elements are included in each resume and cover letter, you are at complete liberty to make certain that your resume will impress your prospective employer.
Just how, exactly, do you do this?
First of all, learn about the most basic principles involved in writing a highly effective resume and cover letter. Once you have this down pat, the creative expression can begin!
Your most basic purpose in writing your resume and cover letter will be to be noticed among the many applicants who line up for most positions these days.
You want to stand out as not just a good candidate but as "the" candidate best fitting for the job you want.
When you consider that next to your well written resume, not even one in a hundred other resumes will be written as well as yours, you can see the odds will be in your favor.
Your salvation here is in writing a resume that will compel a perspective employer to notice your
credentials, see you as the perfect candidate, and give you an interview.
If you can master this technique, the rest will be pure gravy.
