What Your Resume and Cover Letter Say About You - Finnegan Pierson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

What Your Resume and Cover Letter Say About You

As a job applicant, you only have a few pages to explain to a prospective employer why he should take the time to call you and bring you in for an interview. The resume and cover letters that you turn in say a lot about who you are. Here are five things that these documents tell the prospective employers when they read it:

1. What Your Skill Set Is

The number one thing that your resume tells a potential employer is which skills you can bring to the table. You should always be thorough in listing any relevant talents that you have because you will only get one opportunity. Additionally, your resume tells a prospective employer about your professional caliber or pedigree. To gain more experience and elevate your skill set, consider pursuing a degree such as online master's in industrial engineering. Not only will you expand your knowledge, but you'll be better equipped to climb the career ladder in your workplace. Let this part of your resume shine, and the employer may just pick you up because of it. 

2. How Dedicated You Are

Your resume shows your level of dedication whether you realize it or not. The prospective employer sees the amount of time that you stayed on different jobs, and he equates that to stability and dedication. It's a plus if you have stayed on your job for several years. Employers love people who want to stay for the duration. They generally aren't looking for "fly by night" employees but rather people who will stick with the company and continue to marinate in its growth.

3. How Much You Want the Job

Your cover letter is a piece of the puzzle that lets the employer know how much you want the job. Your willingness to take the time to explain extra details about yourself will inform the company that you are serious about it considering you. Take advantage of the time and add as much information you can to your already superb application and resume. 

4. If You're Detail Oriented

The overall quality of your resume will tell the potential employer if you are detail oriented or not. That quality is a highly desired one that many employers seek in their employees. They do pay attention to the quality of resumes and cover letters. You could receive a phone call for an interview if your resume is flawless because many applicants will not turn in a resume that is in that condition. 

5. Where You Want to Go

The person who receives your resume will be able to view your career path. This person will be able to see where you have been, which will give them an indication of where you want to go. You can even elaborate on it in your cover letter. Your cover letter is the part of your application where you get to talk about those elements that are not on your resume. That would be the perfect way to let the employer know that you are interested in long-term employment with them that will be fruitful for both you and the company. 

6. How You Feel About Yourself

Your cover letter and resume tell a potential employer a little bit about the way that you perceive yourself. They will know whether you have low self-esteem, a healthy self-image or a super-inflated image. They'll generally want it to be somewhere in between. They won't appreciate too much cockiness, so don't overdo it when you create these forms. The reader should get the impression that you know you have elements to offer the company, but your ego is not blown up as to where you are completely stuck on yourself. 

If you're thinking about applying for a job any time soon, you should also consider having someone put together a professional resume and cover letter for you. You'll be glad that you put the extra effort into it.
