7. Poor examples of experience: If you want to be shortlisted then you need to include specific examples of your achievements and the impact they have had. Too often people say something like I have successfully managed a team of 20 staff without saying why it was successful.
In todays job market you have to show the reader why you are different than the thousand other job hunters going after the same position. The first third of your resume is your three million-dollar billboard and best sales pitch. Show the employer why you are in the top tier of your industryand that you are innovative, forward-focused, and high caliber.
When writing a cover letter to be submitted with your resume, consider what an employer or recruiter goes through and how many other cover letters and resumes they will read along with yours. Let me first begin by telling you that a cover letter is mandatory when submitting your resume to any company. The only circumstance under which there is an exception is if your resume will be hand delivered, you were told not to include a cover letter and the job is guaranteed to you. For most people looking for jobs in this weakened economy, this is not likely the case. There are several rules to which you should adhere with very little room for compromise. The main thing to remember is not to overdo it. Who wants to read a two page cover letter? Recruiters barely read a two page resume, more over a cover letter that length. Below is a simple format to follow when writing your cover letter.
