What size font is best suited to a resume? By Matthew Coppola

So, you want to make sure that your resume can be easily read. What size font is best suited for a resume and cover letter?

My suggestion is size 10 font for the CV, and either size 10 or size 11 font for the cover letter.

Generally speaking, most job applications are viewed online, rather then printed out and read in paper form. The reason being is that a recruiter/employer may receive hundreds of applications. In the interests of saving paper/environmental sustainability and cost reduction (costs in paper and ink), they may opt to just view the application documents online.

Viewing documents on a computer screen allows you to expand and zoom in on the document, depending on the reader’s preference.

Would you like a new and tailored resume and cover letter that helps to highlight the valuable skills and experience you have gained in past roles? Would you like assistance addressing key selection criteria?

Should my cover letter be the same for every job I apply for? By Matthew Coppola

More often than not, when we are searching for jobs that we want to apply for, there is more than one job that captures our attention and motivates us to want to put forward our application.

A challenge that many people face when looking for work is finding the energy and patience to tailor an application letter for each and every job. So, many forego the task of personalising their cover letter and just write up a standard, generic type letter and send it out to all the different kind of jobs they submit their resume for.

The positive side of this (Now I am scraping to find something positive from doing this) is that you can apply for more jobs more quickly in less span of time. The downside of sending out a generic cover letter is that the document may not capture the essence of what the employer is asking for. Nor will it demonstrate to the employer that you as the candidate would particularly like to work for their company/organisation and what you can bring to the role specifically for what they are asking for.
