A cover letter is like a sales letter. It should answer the employer’s needs and requirements. That is to say, it is very employer-centered.
Before you begin your cover letter, make sure that you have done a sufficient research on the employer and the company, and read through all the requirements posted on the advertisement.
A resume (or Curriculum Vitae) is the first step to present you to a potential employer. It opens the door to a job interview. Thus, it is very important that you summarize all the relevant qualifications, experiences, skills and achievements in your resume.
However, a good resume does not necessarily record all the information. A resume with 1 to 2 pages is more than enough.
Bear in mind, thousands of resumes are received by an employer everyday, he or she might only have thirty seconds or so to browse your resume, how to excel yourself within the limited time becomes a key issue. It is unwise to pour every little detail into your resume as if it is a track record of your life!
Congratulations! Being offered an interview means that you are a step closer to success. However, in order not to miss this golden opportunity, you got to be well-prepared first.
