How to write a Cover Letter
- This is a concise one-page letter where you introduce yourself, explain why the role in question appeals to you and why you think you’d be a good fit – in terms of skills, experience and personal attributes.
- Ideally it should encourage the employer to read your resume and finish with a polite request for an interview.
- After you’ve done one cover letter, use this as a template for future applications.
- It’s always a good idea to send a cover letter unless the job advertisement specifically says NOT to include one.
How to Write a Resume
- When applying for a job, your resume (or “CV”) is your most important tool. It needs to demonstrate in a clear, professional manner that you have employment experience and meet the requirements of the position.
- Your basic personal details and relevant skills and experience should feature prominently.
- You may need to tailor your resume slightly depending on the role you’re applying for. That way, employers can easily find what they’re looking for.
- Elements of an effective resume generally include:
- Contact details
- Opening statement
- List of key skills
- List of technical/software skills
- Personal attributes/career overview
- Educational qualifications
- Employment history/volunteering/work placements
