Applying for various roles – general and broad resume and cover letter
Having worked in the same business for the last 12 years this client is ready to move on, with a few different ideas in the wind, but no specific role or even industry concrete in his mind for his career move. Having no resume at all, he needed to start from scratch. This client was looking at applying for job ads himself, cold calling with his resume at local businesses, as well as offering up his resume and cover letter to agencies, which means that he required a resume applicable to a range of industries showcasing his wide range of skills.
Unlike most cover letters tailored to specific roles or job descriptions, his letter of application was also broad and versatile. Highlighting some valuable personal attributes such as his ability to work in high-risk environments in a safe and accurate manner, cooperative team membership and his systematic and organised nature. Combined with his practical skills, I am confident this client will be attractive to any recruiter or employer.
