Cover Letters and Resumes allow you to illustrate to a potential employer that you are the best fit to their posted job description. You must be strategic in what content you include. You can determine the way an employer perceives you based on the information you provide.

Resumes

Your resume is often the only picture a recruiter has of you, your abilities, and your accomplishments.  Recruiters typically spend 20 seconds or less scanning a resume.  You need to pack a lot of (carefully crafted) information into that 20 seconds, using the best possible format, to make sure the recruiter adds your resume to the "follow-up" pile. Each resume your submit should be unique to a specific job lead.
