Whether you are an accountant, virtual assistant, or a corporate executive, your job skills are constantly refined. A new sales presentation you’ve organized or the new spreadsheet package you’ve mastered should be included on your résumé. You may have new skills that could turn your dead-end job into a new career in another field. If you update your résumé continually, it makes it easier to send it out at a moments notice. Your résumé should be well written, typeset and laser printed. It should also be suited for your targeted employer and field, focusing on your key experience. It should be free of all grammatical errors and appealing to the eye.
A cover letter is generally sent with your résumé. It explains the reason for your interest and the reason a potential employer should consider your qualifications.
