What any good job hunter needs is a resume package. As for the cover letter and the resume, it always go together and do the same basic thing in slightly different ways. A job hunter without both of them will probably not get very far in the search for a good career position.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at what these crucial documents should do for you. The first part, the cover letter, is a short one page letter consisting of three or four paragraphs. Aside from that, it also serves as an introduction to the resume. Also, it is the part that the gatekeeper will always see.
For the second part, it is the resume itself. Many job hunters make the mistake of thinking they can just leave a resume without a cover letter. That is just like forgetting the shirt or the pants while putting on a suit and a tie. They are like a package in which they go together.
The resume itself may be in either functional or chronological format. Skills is what the functional format concentrates on. For the chronological format, it concentrates on employment listings. Using elements of both formats are used by the most effective resumes in order to create a combination resume that gets results. Aside from being laid out in a graphically appealing style, it should have adequate use of white space, bullet points to draw attention to important parts, and conservative fonts used. While you will occasionally bold face or italicize a font to draw attention to a point or break up a large section of type, changing fonts often makes it hard to read, so stick with one basic font. Not to mention that you should never go smaller than ten point type, and if possible stick with twelve or eleven point. If you use these sizes, then it will be easier to read. If your cover letter and resume are in a small type and hard to read, they simply will not be read, and will not help you.
How they should present the resume package to the decision maker is what many job seekers are wondering about. Several acceptable methods are available for this. In order to avoid folding your materials, you need to use a large nine by twelve white envelope if you mail it. Unlike the tan manila commonly used in business, the white envelopes look nicer. Generally, large envelopes are also the first thing people open when they get their mail. Or they may save the large envelope for last if not the first. The alpha and the omega is what people tend to remember which is also the first and the last and so while forgetting what is in the middle, either first or last is a good thing.
