Tip 1: Your application documents must be a Spiegel breast
Formulating your resume and cover letter is not a "painting thing". It takes time and a precise recap of your practical and theoretical experience. Analyze the job profile and the tasks in detail.
Are you looking for a person who can also be a good acquaintance with whom you will always go through your career with a focus on the job profile. Write down the important points. The focus is on your specific positioning. That's why you build your argumentation framework.
Tip 2: Position your application documents for target groups
Every area, be it marketing, purchasing, logistics, sales or as an assistant to the management, requires different skills and soft skills. Think about which skills you should bring to your area.
Your application documents are about you as a “product” to be advertised. You are the right person because ... Now you are collecting concrete arguments for your intended audience.
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? Then you need to make it clear to the company that they need you exactly. Where can you show off? If, for example, your contribution increased sales, did you successfully manage employees, you were able to work on the company's success in a project.
On the other hand, it is about successfully completed tasks that fit the ad profile. Also take a look at your future activities. Have you already done similar work? Think of a logical sequence. If you cannot come up with concrete numbers and facts, convince you emotionally with a storytelling cover letter.
Tip 4: Motivate with your cover sheet for further reading
A cover sheet as a “QuickReader” precedes your resume. It should motivate the decision maker to read on carefully. With this page you are sure to receive quick attention.
Your cover sheet consists of your professional application photo and a short profile. The most important facts are summarized in bullet points. What is really important to the reader? He clearly recognizes your positioning. Limit yourself to five to seven points. The more performance-oriented your job, the more facts you should explain your successes.
Tip 5: Potential for optimizing your CV - This is what you can get out of your CV
Simply by omitting or emphasizing you can set priorities in your resume. Present important episodes in a success-oriented way. It sounds much more interesting to the decision maker than if you describe your activities (only) in a factual and task-related manner. In addition to what you have done, write what you have achieved on your resume.
Try to address the individual categories as specifically as possible, always focusing on your job profile. Do not underestimate the rubric commitment and free time. Interests are part of who you are. They show what you are passionate about.
Tip 6: ET CETERA or whatever else you have to consider in the application documents
If you have now prepared your documents perfectly, you have to send them perfectly to your recipient. One of the four variants, eMail, Online form, by mail or in person you will use for yourself.
Regardless of which path you choose, keep in mind that you can overlook mistakes even if you do it again. Give your application documents to a second or even third person. In addition, put your application documents aside for 24 hours before you finally send them. I wish you success
