Resume Customization and Cover Letter
Every student has at least 5 plus companies in their dream list and the most frequent mistake they do, submitting the same resume without customization in every single organization for different openings. First, study the firms you are applying for and change the format, the order of training, certifications and mainly the cover letter. The cover letter became an essential thing for the last 2 years in the job industry. Don’t create your cover letter as the second copy of your resume, make it clear, straight forward and unique for different vacancies.
Your interaction apart from answering the asked questions by the interviewer is very crucial in terms of selection. It shows that you as a bold, open and not a shilly-shally personality. Try to ask questions to the interviewer when they tell you to do. Give suggestions, feedback, clear your doubts about earlier asked questions or give a thankyou note. Remember a flexible, quick learner with less technical skills is far better than a close-minded, incurious candidate with high technical skills.
