Ok, you’re getting close to done.
You finally have a fleshed out resume and cover letter but you’re still feeling a bit insecure about it…
To help answer these last lingering doubts we recommend using Peer Review. Yes, it can be a little awkward asking a friend or family member to read over these things, but the extra eyes are usually worth that little bit of internal squirming!
To help make it as easy as possible, here is a suggested approach. You basically want to make sure your resume and cover letter:
And as for specific questions…
1. Check you’re conveying what you’re intending
2. Check if you’re missing key traits / points
3. Check you don’t highlight weaknesses
How to take action now!
Take your latest resume and cover letter out with you next time you leave the house. When you’re with a good friend or family member ask for 10 minutes of their time and go over these questions. Once you’ve done it once, it will get easier and easier (and less internally awkward). As with many things, the first time is the hardest, so pushing yourself to start now will mean easier times are ahead :)
