We have finally almost made it to our goal. Getting the green career we have always wanted!
Let's learn together how we can get that job.
Writing a perfect cover letter and resume are essential.COVER LETTER
Cover letters allow our potential employers to know who we are. These may be things beyond the resume. Many times cover letters can determine whether or not our employer will even read our resume.
Our first paragraph (address it to the person hiring) will get the person who is reading the letter to read more. Show that you understand what the company is and what it does. Pick one thing about yourself that will suit the need of the company.
Our body paragraph will tell the employer know what our strengths are (this should be easy since we determined that back while we were looking for the green job). We are basically selling ourselves and our traits, pick good ones.
Our final paragraph will ask for the interview. Assuming that we have impressed them enough at this point, they should be happy to give us that interview. Please remember we have to be polite. Let's let the company know that we will be following up with them (don't forget to follow up).
Of course, end your letter with "sincerely yours"
Sound simple enough?
Ask a friend or relative for a fresh set of eyes.RESUME
Our resumes are the details about our experience and schooling. We thought the best way to get our resumes done was to turn to an already great source, How To Write a Resume dot net. Here are the eight basic points to consider. Put your technical skills first, in today's computer age, our employers need to know that we are able to use Microsoft or other programs. Put the qualifications that are most applicable to the position we applying to above other qualifications. Remember that we are showcasing why we are good for their company.
For this next part, pull out a thesaurus. Make sure that your use action words. Be clear and concise. Don't go overboard and offer information that is not necessary for our employers to know.
Resume complete. Good
Take it to a friend or relative for a fresh pair of eyes.
Let's go get that job.
