The Key to a new job!!
Your Resume
• 3 types; Chronological, Functional,
Combination
Chronological Resume: A chronological resume starts by listing your work history,
with the most recent position listed first. Employers typically prefer this type of
resume because it's easy to see what jobs you have held and when you have worked
at them.
Functional Resume: A functional resume focuses on your skills and experience,
rather than on your chronological work history. It is used most often by people
who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.
Combination Resume: A combination resume lists your skills and experience
first. Your employment history is listed next. With this type of resume you can
highlight the skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for,
and also provide the chronological work history that employers prefer.
• The first resume you write should be what I
call your “uber resume” (also known as
"Resume Journaling"). This means you write a
resume that includes everything you ever did,
even if it is an additional job, or duty. This
resume will be way more than the
recommended 1-2 pages long
Things you will need
• School transcripts
• Training certificates
• Reviews
• White Papers, patents, books, blogs you have
written
• Old resumes
• For Vets DD214, PQR, Ace Transcripts, etc.
• Any other information that can provide
information and data for your resume
The key to a new job!!
Notes
• Use action words such as; increased, built,
created, accomplished.
• Use measurables such as; increased sales by
120%.
• Do not over use the same words, the
theasarus is your friend here.
So now you have this big, long “uber resume”.
So what’s next?
• When you start applying to jobs, and you copy out of your
“uber resume” the parts that are specific to the job you are
applying for. For example, if you are applying for a recruiting
job, you copy out the recruiting specific portions of your
“uber resume” thus creating a “recruiting resume”. Now you
have a recruiting specific resume that can be used for
applying to recruiting jobs and it was all quick and easy as cut
and paste. Now once you have done that ensure you add or
reword things in this resume to match the requirements of
the job you are applying for, all while keeping true to the
guide lines listed above. Now you have a resume geared
specifically for the job you are applying for. Remember to try
to keep it to no more than 2 pages. The key is "try", if you
have enough experience and it goes longer, so be it.
• Make sure your resume you submit has all the keep words
that match the job description you are applying.
Cover Letter
• A cover letter is a letter that introduces you more formally, announces you
candidacy, and should provide some information that is not in your resume about
how you qualify for the position.
Suggested cover letter layout:
• List your name, email address, and telephone number with area code at the top of
the page.
• Address the cover letter to a specific person if possible.
• First paragraph: Begin with an introduction paragraph to explain how you learned
about the job or the company. (Job fair, newspaper, friend.) Name the specific
position that you are applying for.
• Second paragraph: Briefly write up your skills to aim toward the open position and
explain what you can bring to the job. Do not simply repeat the information in
your resume. Be creative when explaining why you are the best job match. The
goal of the cover letter is to encourage the employer to read your resume.
• Third paragraph: Explain the next action you will take. For example: I will
telephone in one week to follow up on this position. Be sure to thank the
employer for their time, stating that you look forward to interviewing with them.
Close and sign your letter. For example:
Respectfully,
Your handwritten signature (if being mailed or handed in person)
Type your name
John Doe
123 1st ST
Starfire, VA XXXXX
(XXX) XXX-XXXX
E-MAIL XXXX@starfire.net
To Hiring Manager(prefer actual name here),
Success is inevitable when individual work efforts unite to achieve a common objective. To
accomplish this goal, personnel must combine communication, technical and organizational skills with a
genuine dedication to quality results. As a seasoned professional, I possess the leadership and technical
skills to create and develop strategies that best support your company’s objectives. Please take a
moment to review a sample of my professional qualifications.
• Successfully created XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
• Exceptional analytical problem-solving ability. Excellent verbal and written skills.
• Analyzed, selected, utilized, and implemented XXX Best Practices.
My resume further details my experience and achievements. I attribute my continued
success to an optimistic and result orientated approach to any situation, as well as my natural ability to
motivate and communicate effectively with clients, employees and fellow workers.
I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding my resume. Thank You for taking the time
to review my qualifications.
Sincerely
XXXXXXX
More
Ok you know how to write a resume, and a cover letter.
Now for the final piece, the thank you note for after
interviews of any kind. The thank you note should be
short, concise, and above all appreciate of their time.
General guideline:
• Greeting
• Thank you for taking time to interview
• Statement of how you feel you fit after the interview
and the information you found out via the interview
• A wrap up such as; “I look forward to hearing from
you”.
• Your name
Note
• Ensure to have a list of references ready.
• At least 3, with at least 1 being a supervisor
and 1 being a coworker.
• Make sure you know what they are going to
say.
• Make sure they know they are being your
reference.

The key to a new job!!

  • 1. The Key to a new job!!
  • 2. Your Resume • 3 types; Chronological, Functional, Combination Chronological Resume: A chronological resume starts by listing your work history, with the most recent position listed first. Employers typically prefer this type of resume because it's easy to see what jobs you have held and when you have worked at them. Functional Resume: A functional resume focuses on your skills and experience, rather than on your chronological work history. It is used most often by people who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history. Combination Resume: A combination resume lists your skills and experience first. Your employment history is listed next. With this type of resume you can highlight the skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for, and also provide the chronological work history that employers prefer.
  • 3. • The first resume you write should be what I call your “uber resume” (also known as "Resume Journaling"). This means you write a resume that includes everything you ever did, even if it is an additional job, or duty. This resume will be way more than the recommended 1-2 pages long
