Selling yourself to employers is like selling a product. You have to market yourself. How do you do this? You need to identify selling points, decide on a method by which to communicate them to your target market and compose that communication effectively.

 

The purpose of the resume is to secure an interview, NOT a job! The cover letter is an introduction to the resume, generating interest on the part of the employer and leading him/her to want to learn more about you.
