Our Digital Job Products
A resume is a marketing document of you and your services to a buyer. It includes only the relevant information to a specific job posting. There are a lot of resume templates on the internet that are in the wrong format or are too busy. It can be hard to identify which resume template is the best to use. The best resume format is one that is simple and easy to read down the page. Recruiters spend on average 6 seconds reviewing a resume as they have thousands of resumes to search through to find the right candidate. You will want to make your resume skimable. The information on your resume should go straight down the page with plenty of white space. The professional summary in a resume is now outdated as it causes the reader to work to find information. We offer a free resume template, or for purchase at an affordable price on our Etsy shop, in the best format to help get you started in the job application process, setting you up for success.
A curriculum vitae is a full history of your academic achievements and your work experience. This document is used for people who are in the academic, research or medical fields. A student curriculum vitae will list education at the top, then awards, followed by research experience and so on. A professional curriculum vitae is for post-doctoral fellows, professors, senior research scientists and other more experience professionals. A professional curriculum vitae starts with professional positions held, then professional services, followed by awards and education and so on. You can choose which sections are more relevant and place those at the top. Receiving a grant award is a big deal in research, so that should go somewhere near the top. There can be a transition between a student and a professional curriculum vitae; slowly start adding in sections that go on a professional curriculum vitae as you gain experience. Student and professional curriculum vitae templates are available for purchase in our Etsy shop.
A cover letter is the voice to your resume or curriculum vitae. It conveys who you are and why you want the job. In the first paragraph, a cover letter should have a powerful connection story to the company. The 2nd and 3rd paragraphs include how your expertise or services makes or saves the company money or solves a problem for the company. Give an example of this from your current or previous job. Finally in the last paragraph, ask for the job and give your contact information. If anyone in the company recommended you for the role, you can name drop them here. Your cover letter should be saved and uploaded as a PDF in a separate document and included with your resume. You can purchase our cover letter template in our resume and cover letter bundle set at our Etsy shop. It includes step by step instructions on what to say.
