What makes a good resume? By Matthew Coppola


There are varying opinions that people will express about their view on what makes a good resume. The fundamentals are still there.

A resume is a document which outlines the individual’s employment history, education details, references, qualities and competencies that they feel they have gained over the course of their working life or time during the study.

So a good resume will not only have this information, but it will also be clear and concise, articulating every detail to support a prospective employer in making their hiring decision.

What it means to actually tailor a cover letter for a position, by Matthew Coppola


A clothing tailor will make sure that your suit, shirt and pants are made to fit your body shape and preferences for comfort. They make sure that your suit is tailor made for you. When you try on the suit, they want you to feel that it was made exactly for you and that it fits like a glove.

The same is true for a tailoring a cover letter for a particular position.

The whole purpose of tailoring a cover letter is to create an impression that your letter was made for the employer. That is, it fits their position – like a glove. Many cover letters fail because they are too general, broad and open ended. Sometimes a candidate will write too much about themselves, and not what they can do for the employer.

Put yourself in the shoes of an employer seeking to fill a position and so decides to create a job advertisement.

They are setting aside a large sum of money to invest in another employee, or it may be the first person they are about to hire. So there is a fair amount of money on the line and they want to make sure that they hire the best candidate for the position. Someone that will bring in more value and contribute more than what they are being paid to do.  Although not all employers would feel this way,  the main point is that an employer wants someone who is genuinely interested in the role and genuinely interested in contributing their time and expertise to the benefit of the employer and their operations.
