Hello, I'm trying to get a new job since my last job ended this past tuesday, and I was wondering if there is anyone who could help me with my resume, I have tried manytime to do it but it just doesn't seem to be correct.

I also need to know how to write a cover letter? I don't know exactly what it is used for or what I'm suppose to put in this cover letter.

thanx
Hi Shirelle,
a cover letter is usually a formal way of introducing yourself to the prospective employer. usually all resumes need to be accompanied by a cover letter.

i will show you below an example of a simple cover letter. u can use it as a reference for preparing your cover letter.

1) if you sending your resume by post, attach your cover letter first and then your resume so that people see your cover letter first.
2) if you are sending ur resume by e-mail, specify the post applied for and the date of publication of the advertisement in the "Subject" of the mail and in the body first write the covering letter with your resume below.
