Guidelines In Writing An Ideal Resume

By Sylvia Meyer

A good resume should be able to make the owner be considered for a post by the would-be employer. A good cover letter should go hand in hand with a resume when you are trying out your luck at a vacancy. It should be well written for it to grab the attention of your potential employer.

Do not mistake your resume for a biography. Be concise while conveying your message. Time is of the essence.

The cover letter should first inform the organization of the job you are applying for and then go ahead to inform the reader about your three main arguments supporting your suitability for the job.

The first impression you give people about yourself is what they will cling to for a long while to come. You should know that your resume in most cases would be talking about the kind of skills and jobs you have done before. It has too much technical stuff such that the person reading it has to rely on the cover letter to see through your character. Therefore, have a good cover letter.

The documents should at all costs attract attention. You should not be just another job applicant. If your resume and cover letter looks to similar to the next job applicant, you will be at a disadvantage.

You should plan and write your cover letter knowing that it is good enough to get you hired. It will serve like an advertisement that will get you noticed by the employer.

One thing to note about cover letters is that you should crosscheck them for any grammatical errors. Make sure that the thoughts belong there.

You should read the letter over, many times to screen for errors you may not have seen at first. You should verify that the flow of ideas is smooth and makes sense.
