Bear in mind that a cover letter is the summary of your resume, typically the points that are powerful in your resume. This means that in writing a cover letter, do not over boast on all of your achievements, or do not be too humble as well, you need to sell your self in a way that they will hire you because they are impressed, not because they pity you, remember, there are no company in today's time who hires a person because they seem to be pitiful. Companies need a strong individual.
Dare to Be Unique – You may increase your chance of getting hired and reduce the risk of being rejected. There are new styles that you can use depending on the industry or position you desire. Usually printed in black ink, resumes now come in a variety of colors, formats, and sizes. Ever seen one that is folded like a brochure or leaflet? You might think it wouldn't be possible. But aside from this interesting idea, it is more likely to catch the attention of employers. Folding in leaflet style is usually done by those who are applying in the marketing or advertising industry. If you are applying as a graphic designer, you can present one in comic layout. It's very unique, right? But the important details must still be there. How about as a copywriter? You can make use of a font that looks like it has been typed from a typewriter.
So why is this opening objective or statement so effective? Because it aligns your resume with effective business meetings that the reader has probably attended. They expect an agenda, a purpose to the meeting. So your resume can signal to them within seconds that you have a background of attending high-powered business meetings. You haven't started listing your job history yet, and already they are wanting that job history to back up the warm feeling that they have from your mission 'statement.' You see how it works? Much the same as how we 'buy' anything of value, we want it emotionally first and then use the facts to logically back up the decision we want to make. So functional resume samples, far from being the dry, tedious documents that that phrase suggests, are resumes that score an early emotional hit with the reader, and puts them in exactly the frame of mind that you want, before they ready their eighty fifth job history of the day!
