Working hard and showing up on time don't count
Use STAR Method:
And, because these are bullets, they do not have to be complete sentences
But they should make sense.
Format was awful!
Had no idea what they did!
What did you actually do?
Never stretch the truth
Use another section to talk about other work experience to show you have transferable skills
Don't bury experience that is critical for the position (technical skills, programs used, etc.)
Include experiences such as extensive travel and specific classes if you have them
Don't forget about keywords that an employer is looking for. Use their job description!
Don't submit the same resume twice! No company is looking for the exact same position.
The basic math
A targeted resume + a well written cover letter
Interview + prepared candidate + right fit for employer = HIRED!
Keep the same heading as your resume
Tailor the cover letter to a person, so they know you wrote it TO them!
The middle sections detail your qualifications and HOW they apply to the position you're applying for.
Provide suggestions for next steps, and thank the person for their time.
Research their organization!
