Write a Perfect Resume and Cover Letter to get your Dream Job

To understand the importance of writing a proper resume, first of all, we need to understand what a resume actually is and why is it so necessary.

Paired with a cover letter, a resume is a formal document that is used to demonstrate your abilities by providing an overview of your professional qualifications. Its main purpose is to convince the employers that you are perfectly qualified for the respected job.

A typical resume consists of relevant work experience, skills, education and notable documents required to be seen by the employer.

When we talk about resumes, the first thing that typically comes to the mind is writing one’s full professional history for the employer. On the contrary, a resume is perfect when it convince the employer that you are worth interviewing. If your resume consists of a summary of your relevant qualifications and skills in a perfect format then you are most likely to get more interviews.

After understanding the importance of resumes we now look at the types of resumes data presented to employers.

Types of Resumes:

There are four main types of resumes

  • Chronological resume
  • Functional resume
  • Targeted resume
  • Combination resume

Taking a small look at all of them.

  • The chronological resume start with an introduction and provides your professional history in a reverse chronological order.
  • A functional resume is formatted in such a way that your skills and abilities are focused upon rather than your work history.
  • A targeted resume is a resume that focuses on the positions you apply for.
  • At last, a combination resume is a format that will combine all the aspects of functional resume and chronological resume.

A resume is not just a paper tool that is used for a job search that offers a page or two to display whatsoever your top qualities and skills are. But on the contrary, resume is your first impression to the employer. A good resume not only lands you a good job but also helps you to achieve professional heights easily.

Why does it matter so much to the employer?

An employer is very keen to to check the resume he/she receives as it helps in understanding of the candidate’s skills, strengths and experiences. Behind first point of contact with the employer, resume set a tone for subsequent steps such as first interviews, second interview, pre-screening and on-boarding.

Why is it important to write a resume in format?

Talking about importance of resumes, it is very necessary that when writing a resume we keep in mind the place, the area and the people for whom we are writing. Different areas across the globe need different format of resumes and expect the candidates to follow those instructions very keenly.

An employer looks for eye catching phrases which match the needs of the resume. Resume containing keywords found in the job description matching with their skills required will land a person with an interview.

If we talk about South Asian countries, usually employers look for resumes that have chronological order explanation of skills that are required. Lengthy details are not recommended. A photo of the employee on top of the resume is very much likable.

Now if you talk about Canada, photo of the employee on top of the resume is considered a taboo and the resume containing such will not only be rejected but also will not be read.

If we have a look on European Standards of Resume, in Germany the resumes are good with the pictures of candidates but in Malta Employers do not like the picture of candidate on resume.

So it always depends on the country specific requirements of Resume and a Cover Letter.

Below are the Sample Formats of Resume and Cover Letter for you reference.

Get your Resume built by a Professional

At the end, a good resume may not land you a job but it will put together for future job findings.

Depending on where you are what kind of job you are applying for, the format of the resume may change but some things will remain the same and those are

Style and personal details
⦁ Adapting the resume for its role
⦁ Minding the length
⦁ Use of keywords from the job description

At last, a resume is a very important first step to landing a good job and should be paid keen attention to.
