Should I attach a cover letter with my resume? By Matthew Coppola


Most job applications these days request for a cover letter as part of your application. It is almost now the appropriate thing to do when applying. The resume outlines the candidate’s skills and experience; then the cover letter takes the next step further to be tailored and directed towards a particular position. It’s a way for the candidate to approach the employer and explain why they want the job and what they can bring specifically to that role.

However, in saying that, some recruiters and a few employers may feel that a cover letter involves too much reading and because they are too busy and have too many applications to read through, so they scan through the resume and look for keywords.

Now that may be true. But without surveying hundreds if not thousands of employers and recruiters, at this stage, it is only a generalisation.

A cover letter nicely complements the resume because the resume may not be tailored for a particular company and what they specifically require from a candidate. Every company and organisation is going to be different.  Their needs and requirements although similar for a role will still vary.

So given this, a cover letter is still suggested to be attached as part of an application.

Is it appropriate to put my interests and hobbies on my resume? By Matthew Coppola


The short answer is it depends. 

It really depends on what stage of your career you are at.

If you are a high school student/university graduate, then most likely you wont have a great deal of work experience and credentials behind you. By listing your interests and hobbies – with a little more detail than just a couple words – you may actually help the employer gain a good insight and understanding into you as a person and what you are interested in. These additional details can say a great deal about your qualities as a person.

If you are a more seasoned professional with years of experience and substantial qualifications behind you, then it’s best to leave it out. Some may argue that there is nothing un-professional with putting hobbies and interests in a resume, others will say that it’s not appropriate and that a resume/CV should only provide the employer with insight into you as a professional and what your expertise and abilities are, not what you enjoy doing on the weekend.

Whatever you do decide to put down in your resume, the question you may want to ask yourself before listing all your interests and hobbies is “Is this necessary and can I be giving the employer the wrong perception about what it will be like working with me?”.

Interview question: Why haven’t you gone further in your profession? By Matthew Coppola


The employer may be curious as to what your career goals are. Are you career driven? Or are you contempt with your current role? Or is there something holding you back from moving further in your profession.

Avoid taking it personal.

At the end of the day, you don’t really need to justify as to why you haven’t gone further in your career. There may be a multitude of reasons for this.

Maybe quite simply you are not career minded, nor do you have great expectations of yourself in the future. Maybe you are contempt with your current state of employment and the level of workload that you have is just enough to cope with.

Or it may be that you genuinely have tried to move up into a higher paying position with more responsibility. Your reasons for this may be varied too. But you have not been successful in moving up because either you don’t have the skills to or you don’t have enough experience that will meet the essential requirements of the new position.

 

Its best to show a contempt attitude with your current level of employment by talking about all your accomplishments, what you have learnt, how good you are at your job or certain aspects of it, and that you are happy either way whether you move up or stay in your current role and just do really well, that is, perfect your role.
