We’ve all been there. The feeling of dread and worry, sweating bullets because we’re underprepared. And after weeks and months of hunting for the right job, this is no place that you want to be.
When it comes to setting the stage for landing your dream job, you have to make sure that you are tending to every detail. Putting together a seamless resume is a very important part of the process. It is true that you are likely to find yourself filed directly into the stack of forgotten candidates if you do not have a resume that quickly catches the eye of your potential hiring manager. However, it is also true that the stand out candidates have also made sure to submit a unique cover letter along with their resume.
When an employer sits down to sift through the many applications for the job at hand, he or she is looking for something that is uncommon. Your future employer wants to be swept up, from the very beginning, by someone who has put in the time and effort to ensure that their skill set and job experience are laid out in a way that is easy to follow yet strikingly different from the norm. The idea is to create a cover letter that does just that.
At Platinum Resumes, we see many clients walk through the door who have worked hard and have sculpted themselves into incredible job candidates, but they are still missing that necessary zing. The job market is competitively fierce, and you must be hitting the mark across the board to be considered in the elite few who actually score an interview. We have found that developing a strong cover letter can help catapult you into that elite group.
Your cover letter should reiterate some of the key accomplishments from your resume without sounding like a broken record. This letter should capture the essence of who you are as a person and as a potential employee, and it needs to be formatted in a way that is strong and effective. Our team at Platinum Resumes has years of experience in helping our clients achieve this purpose. We can use the right words and tactics to display your aptitude and talent without sounding cliché.
