Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 21, 2012
It's no secret that consumers across the globe have gone above and beyond to make their resume stand out among competing job candidates. The online resume-writing tycoon OneBuckResume has responded by announcing the launch of a professional resume cover letter addition to the website's widely publicized $1.00 online resume builder.
The resume writers at OneBuckResume have strongly emphasized the importance of including a cover letter, as Michelle Thompson, the head of client services states:
"As a potential candidate for the job, we always ask our clients to ask themselves: ‘what in my arsenal of experience, skills and qualifications sets me apart from the other applicants? Why will the hiring manager in charge of identifying a suitable candidate pick my resume or cover letter out of a 500 strong pile with the intention of considering me for the position?’ The importance of a cover letter has been proven, time and time again."
Every time an organization puts a job advert out, it is circulated widely and applicants send in cover letters, resumes, and application forms by the hundreds.
Regardless of what position applied for, all job seekers owe it to themselves to give their application the very best shot at the job. Even if a candidate does not consider themselves as "unique", there is no chance that any other applicant has exactly the same collection of skills, experience and qualifications as another. It seems that the key is in portraying this in as honest, yet as unique and attractive light as possible.
