Creating the Perfect eResume and Cover Letter
While the reason we strive for perfection when creating our cover letter and resume is to gain the attention of a potential employer, this task is made both more difficult and simpler with the advent of emailing and faxing our resumes.
When a company received an emailed resume, it is usually entered into their computer system, along with all the other resumes they receive via email, fax, and paper.
When they are ready to find job candidates, they simply have to type in a keyword related to that position, and best matches (resumes) will be returned in their search.
That is why smart and Internet-savvy job seekers include resume keywords on their resumes.
They also have several different versions of their resume already prepared in order to target different job types or titles, and ready to shoot out immediately upon finding a job opening they are interested in and qualified to do.
Each of those different versions contains keywords associated with that specific job type or title, which makes it much more likely for that resume to be one of the resumes returned to the HR when they perform their search in their resume database.
