Yes there are 3 common formats used by professionals in a job hunt: Chronological, functional and combination/hybrid. Each format follows a specific layout and can be tailored based on your skillset and experience. Chronological resumes are for job seekers with a substantial amount of work history. Functional and combination resume are for applicants with less relevant experience, recent graduates, students and anyone changing careers.

Yes, when you build a resume at ResumeHelp, it will be ATS-friendly. This is important because many busy hiring managers use an applicant tracking system tool to scan incoming application resumes and select the most qualified candidates. The ATS is programmed to scan for specific keywords that are strategically placed in the job posting. When you place those keywords in your ResumeHelp resume, you give yourself the opportunity to match those keywords and get recognized as a qualified candidate by the ATS. A resume that is not ATS-friendly, does not have a good chance of being considered for the job nor move along in the hiring process to the prospective employer.

You need a different resume for every job application because each job description will feature something specific about the job requirements. To show that you’re qualified for that particular job, you want to be sure to clearly show on your resume that you match each of those requirements. This also ensures that you match the keywords set up for applicant tracking systems so you keep your resume moving along in the job hiring process. While you may be applying for the same job title in different companies, it’s always a good idea to see what makes each company’s job role a bit different. Then, write your resume accordingly.

Absolutely. Even if the employer doesn’t require a cover letter, this is your opportunity to call out skills that may not be easily conveyed on your resume. It also helps the hiring manager understand how you differ from other applicants to get you one step closer to landing your dream job. ResumeHelp offers a cover letter builder to match your resume in minutes while tailoring it to your unique skills and experiences. Browse cover letter templates and cover letter examples when you’re ready to write a cover letter.

Cover letters are the ideal way to make a great first impression with a hiring manager, recruiter or prospective employer. The general structure of a cover letter is as follows:

1. Header and salutation

Feature your contact information so the prospective employer clearly sees your name, phone number, email address, and professional networking sites like LinkedIn. In your salutation, direct your letter to the hiring manager’s name rather than “To whom it may concern.” You can use “Dear Hiring Manager” if you are unaware of the name.

2. Opening and body paragraphs

Provide a brief introduction and mention the job title you’re applying for in the opening. In the body paragraphs, give a brief overview of your qualifications and list top accomplishments that will impress and hook the manager’s attention. Based on the job you’re applying for, talk about your relevant skills, work experience and knowledge.

3. Call to action/closing

Thank the reader for their time and reiterate your interest in working for the company. Request an interview by offering to provide further information and use a formal closing like “Sincerely.”
