Tip 1: Your application documents must be a mirror

Writing your CV and cover letter is not a "malben thing" It requires time and a precise recapitulation of your practical and theoretical experiences. Analyze the job profile and tasks in detail.

If you are looking for a person, you can also be a good acquaintance with whom you always go through your career with a focus on the job profile. Write down the important points. The focus is on your specific positioning. Therefore build your argumentation framework.

Tip 2: Position your application documents for target groups

Every department, whether it be marketing, purchasing, logistics, sales or as an assistant to management, needs different skills and soft skills. Think about the competences you should bring with you in your field.

It goes in your application documents, to you as a "product" to be umwerb. You are the right person because ... Now you gather concrete arguments for your target group.

Tip 3: Your application documents begin with a success-oriented cover letter

First of all, it's about that Company to convey that you are (only) interested in this. Why do you want to work there? After that you have to make it clear to the company that the company needs you exactly. Where can you boast? If, for example, your turnover has increased as a result of your involvement, you have succeeded in leading employees, and have been able to contribute to the success of the company in a project.

On the other hand, it is about successfully completed tasks that fit the ad profile. Look at your future activities. Have you already done similar work? Think of a logical sequence. If you can not provide specific figures and facts, you can convince them emotionally in a storytelling cover letter.

Tip 4: Motivate with your cover sheet for further reading

A cover sheet as "QuickReader" is placed in front of your resume. It is intended to motivate the decision-maker to keep an eye on the future. With this page, you are sure to get a quick attention.

Your cover sheet consists of your professional application photo and a short profile. The key facts are pooled. What is really important for the reader? He clearly recognizes your positioning. Limit yourself to five to seven points. The more performance-oriented your job, the more factual you should show your success.

Tip 5: Optimization Potential CV - You can get that out of your CV

By omitting or emphasizing, you focus on your CV. Set important episodes success-oriented. This is much more interesting for the decision-maker than if you describe your activities (only) in a specific and task-related manner. Write not only what you have done, but what you have achieved in your resume.

As a matter of fact, try always to focus on the individual sections with a focus on your job profile. Do not underline the commitment and leisure section. Interests are part of your personality. They show what you have developed passions for.

Tip 6: ET CETERA or whatever else you have to consider in the application documents

If you have finished your documents perfectly now, you have to send them perfectly to your recipient. One of the four variants, e-mail, online form, by mail or personally you will use for yourself.

No matter which route you choose, keep in mind that you can miss a mistake even if it is repeated. Give your application documents to a second, possibly even third, person. In addition, you will set aside your application documents for 24 hours before sending them. I wish you success
