5 simple ways we give your Resume and Cover Letter that extra edge

1) Keep it snappy

Employers often have to look through many applications, so grabbing their attention quickly by stating the important information they want to see is very important. Making your Resume or Cover Letter too wordy will only disguise the vital information you want the employer to notice straight away. If you want your application to stand out, only include highly relevant content, and get to the point.

2) Know your industry

Cover Letters and Resumes should always be written in a style that suits your industry. The style of writing you choose, the wording you use, the length of your documents and the content you include, will all vary depending on the job and industry you are in. For example, if you work in the creative industries, your Resume and Cover Letter would use more descriptive language and would tend to include more detail than if you worked in the construction industry, where facts about your qualifications and work experience are the priority.

3) Highlight your accomplishments

Your accomplishments and key achievements are different to your job duties. Many people make the mistake of listing the tasks they complete in their role. However, if you google your job position, you’ll probably find that most of these tasks are standard for anyone in this role, and therefore, unnecessary to mention. Instead, we’ll include your personal work achievements which demonstrate your competence and aptitude for completing such tasks.

4) Proofread & format

This is vitally important. Even if your Resume and Cover Letter have excellent content, if the grammar, spelling, punctuation or formatting aren’t correct or visually appealing, it can fail to impress a prospective employer. Using appropriate line spacing, indentations, bullet points, columns and font style, will all contribute to the final aesthetics of your documents.

5) One size does NOT fit all

Your Cover Letter should always be tailored specifically to the company and job you are applying for. Writing one Cover Letter and forwarding it to multiple employers is not ideal, because employers want to see that you want their job, not just any job. A Cover Letter is your opportunity to show that company that you are interested and serious about working for them. To a certain extent, your Resume may need a little tweaking, too, depending on how significant the differences are between each position you are applying for. This is why we provide you with tips and templates for updating your documents over time, so that your Resume and Cover Letter can be used again and again, until you secure your dream job.
