Press release from: BriteTab

Even if you submit a resume and cover letter, most employers will also ask that you submit a job application specific to their company. Job applications allow employers to ensure that they receive consistent information from all candidates. A job application becomes a type of contract between you and your potential employer that states that all information you have submitted is reliable. Before you complete an application, either online or in-person, review these resume and application tips. These resume and application tips will be sure to prepare you to submit an application for employment:

•Pay Attention to Keywords: A huge resume and application tip that should never be underestimated is the importance of keywords. In updating or creating a resume as well as filling out your application, think about the keywords that will correlate with the position you are applying for as well as your knowledge, skills, and abilities. You could be the right applicant for the position, but without the keywords, your just another candidate.

•Be Concise: Employers can easily become swamped with applications and are forced to quickly weed out the good and the bad. To do this, they first only skim through submissions and eliminate those who are clearly not qualified. For your application to pass the skin test follow the resume and application tips to be sure your credentials can be seen within 10-15 seconds, critical information jumps off the page, and you effectively sell yourself in the first quarter of the page.

•Use numbers to highlight your accomplishments: An importance resume or application tip is to add numbers to your accomplishments to make an impact on your employer. “Wrote 100 releases in a month” carries more weight then “Wrote new releases.” The numbers quantify your accomplishment, giving the interviewer understands the level of difficulty in the task. Numbers are powerful resume tool and as important resume and application tip. Numbers draw the attention you deserve from prospective employers. Emphasize how you work effectively and quickly on tasks because time is money.

These are a few resume and application tips that can be utilized to enhance both of your submissions for employment. In being vigilant in your resume and carrying over that information into your application, the potential employer will be able to see the consistency of your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Resume and application tips will allow you to enhance the probability of landing your desired position.
