Timely Tip – If you’re scouting around the web picking up ideas on how to write your cover letter, we’d strongly recommend that you dramatically change anything you copy from the Melbourne Resumes website, as there’s a good chance that other candidates have copied from exactly the same cover letter samples and resume templates.

You don’t want to come across as looking like every other candidate……so write in your own style or contact Melbourne Resumes on 1300 979 890 for quote.  Our cover letter writing services start from just $150 for a high quality professional cover letter.

Employers see it as a dead give away if you have just used a generic cover letter to send your resume in. It screams that you aren’t that interested, but you thought you better send in a job application, just in case.

Many candidates overlook the importance of the cover letter, and just send out one generic cover letter to every job they apply for. This is a big mistake that may be costing them dearly. Don’t be like the herd of people that are generally lazy!

You cover letter needs to be presented in the same format that your resume or CV is formatted. We suggest you use open block format and use a professional and narrative writing style.

Your opening statement should grab the attention of the reader immediately within the first sentence. It should speak to the reader and tell them exactly why you are the ideal person for the job.

It should address each of the criteria listed in the job advert or in the job description, so the recruiter and/or hiring manager can clearly see that you have taken the effort to articulate exactly why you are definitely worth an interview.

Finally, a great cover letter will ensure that your resume is not only read but read in the best possible context, draw attention to the most relevant parts of your resume and make it clear why you should be interviewed!

Take the time to tailor your cover letter, or have a professional cover letter written for you.

If the job is worth applying for, then it’s worth writing a letter to tell them why you believe you are the best candidate for the job.

Preparing your chronological resume

The purpose of a resume is to sell your skills to a potential employer, think of it as a marketing tool rather than a report. It needs to grab the reader’s attention by demonstrating that you are qualified to do a particular job.

Preparing your functional resume

The difference between a standard or chronological resume and a functional one is you concentrate more on the skills learnt and experience gained, more so than the actual work undertaken, hence it is the preferred method to use if changing industries or career path. It is also used for persons with more experience or later in their career.

Selecting referees

Referees are used by employers to check your suitability for a position and to verify your previous employment.

Who should I choose?

You should choose people who are in a position to comment on your skills, experience and achievements. Depending on how long you have been working for at least one of your referees should be someone to whom you’ve directly reported.

Always ask permission to nominate someone as a referee first. (Previous employers / managers are not obliged to provide you with a reference). Referees should be people who will support your application. If you have any doubts, ask most people will be honest if they feel they can’t support you.

Ensure you have up to date contact details for your referees including current job title, telephone numbers and email address, nothing is more frustrating for a prospective employer as well as showing a lack of attention to detail.

How many should I choose?

For new graduates, two is the minimum number of professional referees recommended. As you obtain more work experience you should develop a pool of around 5-6. This gives employers a choice in who they speak to, and also gives you a fallback if one of your referees is unavailable for some reason.

Briefing Referees

  • Ensure they have an up to date copy of your resume.
  • Let them know in advance when they are likely to be contacted and by whom. This is particularly important if you have nominated a university lecturer or somebody else who might be a referee for a lot of people. Tell them what you learnt about the position at the interview. Remind them about relevant bits of your work experience.
  • Notify them when you’ve been successful.

Tips

  • Don’t give out the names of your referees until asked. This gives you the opportunity to brief them first.
  • Only allow reference checking after you’ve had an interview for a position and you know you are on the shortlist and you’re interested in the position.
