You don't know where that resume sample's been. Yes, I know. I sound like I'm channeling a mother scolding a child to take that stick (or pencil, or shoe, or toilet plunger) out of his mouth. But sometimes, mothers know best. In the case of the free resume samples you might uncover on the internet, there's no telling how many times that text has been copied and pasted onto documents. In other words, you don't know where it's been. If a hiring manager has seen the exact same objective and summary language on six resumes that have come across his desk that morning, how do you think he'll react when he sees your document duplicating the same text all over again? Not favorably, I suspect.
It's important for you to keep in mind that your cover letter summarizes the most powerful points in your resume. This means that the cover letter is not a place to be modest–you need to sell your skills as convincingly as you can. When recruiters look at cover letter resumes, they usually ask, ”What's in it for us?” If you're writing your cover letter now, you better make sure that you're making full use of its four components well. Every word in that cover letter counts. Looking at a cover letter resume sample can only be helpful to a point. You should not, in any case, copy any sample verbatim. That's the lazy way of writing a cover letter, and it never works. The best cover letters are written in the applicant's own words. Make sure that your tone isn't too casual that it ends up sounding arrogant, nor too stiff and formal that it ends up looking long winded and tortured.
The resume should be designed so that the most important information can be obtained with only a cursory scan. This is usually all the effort that your resume will initially receive. Only the most important information should be presented in your resume and it should be devoid of excessive verbiage. This makes it easier for the reader to obtain and remember the pertinent information. Work experience that is not related to the educational field should be summarized. This shows depth and breadth in your subject area. However, it should not be the main thrust. Your teaching and training experience should be the focus of your resume. You should also be sure to indicate your educational achievements including all honors and awards you have received. A teaching resume should be designed to reflect that you are well-established in your field and that you have the background and teaching experience that they may require. The purpose of the resume is to get your foot in the academic door. Thus, it is important that the resume be properly designed.
