Resume and cover letter are important tools to gain the attention of the employer and sell your candidature in the job market. In such as a cut throat competition, best communication with the prospective employer can give you a golden opportunity. It is all about presenting your professional life in a systematic and qualified way. You write what you are; so you need to take extra care in the selection of words and selection of format and style while writing to your future employer.
A resume summarizes the candidate's professional skills, educational background, and work experience, and achievements in the old jobs. It is said that the longer a resume, the better it is. The long resumes can give due justice to each topic in the resume. We get enough space to write and we can put forward our points effectively. It is required to change your resume as per the job you are applying for. If you tailor the resume considering the job type and the employer type, it will give you greater benefits than the generic resume. A tailored resume enables you to write pertinent job roles and responsibilities and required skills and abilities. A resume is advertised document by you.
The cover letter is supposed to be the first form of communication on behalf of the candidate with his or her employer. A cover letter is mostly accompanied by your resume. You are first required to study the advertisement you are referring to. Learn more about the employer. You must know the domain of the employer and learn more about the things which establish the employer different than the others. Study more about the company's past, their achievements, work culture, few unique policies, and their customer base; this makes employer understand that the candidate is truly interested in the company.
