Five Ways to Get Your Resume in Front of Your Target
- In Person—The most effective way to submit your cover letter and resume is to do it in person. That is why you want to work with AA Temps. We provide you with the interviews.
- Facsimile (Fax)— still popular but may arrive illegible or blurred. Hard copies have to be handled, indexed, and stored.
- e-Mail—second worst way, because many employers have anti-spam filters or do not open a resume attachment for fear of a computer virus.
- US Mail—The worst way to send your resume because it is delivered to your target company with junk mail and bills, then gets sorted by someone, piles up with the other resumes in someone's in-box, and may sit for a long time before being opened.
- AA Temps On-Line Form—this is a pared-down version of your resume and allows our recruiters to 1. Review the information quickly, and 2. Keep and easily access the data in our current database. We still ask you to attach your resume
Cover letter—Keep it simple, keep it brief e.g., salary details, reasons for job change, one or two relevant past performance descriptions. Keep the cover letter separate from the resume—include it in the body an email.
Job Title—Find the exact job title listed in the posting and include it in the e-Mail subject matter line or on the fax cover sheet.
Use MS Word—the most widely accepted form.
Salary—“negotiable” doesn't help. Use a salary range—and keep the spread between two and five thousand dollars per year.
Objective—Do not use an "Objective."
References—Do not provide references or use "upon request." References come later.
Keywords—extract the keywords from the job description into a single list of keywords. Pack those keywords into your resume. We even recommend putting them in a separate box or table and titling them "Keywords."
