The most qualified person for the job is not always the one hired. Why is that? For people who are changing careers or trying to secure employment, standing out among hundreds of applicants is a major challenge.
What makes an employer choose one applicant over another? A mind-blowing cover letter and killer resume make a winning combination that will make any prospective employer take notice.
Applications that include cover letters always stand out among a sea of resumes. A good cover letter can make the difference between a potential employer reading the attached resume or just tossing it in a pile with hundreds of others. The right cover letter can catapult an applicant onto the short list of qualified individuals while the wrong one can mean instant dismissal with the resume never being read.
Learning the dos and don’ts of writing cover letters can give anyone an edge over the competition, as demonstrated in the guide, How to Write a Cover Letter for a Job Application That Will Blow Their Mind. The guide explains the essentials of writing cover letters in an easy to understand format. A helpful tool for any job-seeker.
A mind blowing cover letter should be followed by a resume that is equally impressive if the applicant expects to keep the reader’s interest. Employers usually have to view vast numbers of resumes and after a while, they all look the same. Most employers don’t bother to read each resume thoroughly. Instead, they scan the first page looking for specific information and usually discard resumes that don’t instantly show them what they want to see.
A resume must catch the reader’s eye at first glance and present the information he or she is looking for as quickly as possible. What are the first things employers look for on a resume? Knowing exactly what to include in a resume, and how to present it is the key to creating a resume that will land a job.
How to Write a Killer Resume: And How to Get the Job You Want is a handy guidebook that explains all of the secrets to writing a powerful resume, including what employers look for when scanning resumes. It’s a fast and easy read, just like the resumes it helps readers create.
To succeed in a competitive job market, job seekers need to arm themselves with as much knowledge as possible. Often, the process of getting the job is more exhausting than the job itself, and it’s easy to become discouraged.
These two books work very well together in covering everything a person needs to know to write the perfect combination of cover letter and resume. These no-nonsense books give readers the information they want without rambling on endlessly about irrelevant issues. Both books can be picked up on Amazon or if you would like to find out more about the author go to: http://www.findtherightjob.net
