First up is my cover letter:
To Whom it May Concern:
I am seeking a position in an organization where I can use my skills to help a company thrive. I enjoy working with technology and am a very quick learner. I am a natural leader and tend to step up to organize a team to get tasks done.
Since I am critical thinker and highly analytical, it is very easy for me to see the big picture and present solutions to problems. Many people come to me with technological issues to trouble shoot. I usually can solve the problem immediately. If I can’t, I have the ability to do research quickly and solve the problem. Solving problems is something I enjoy and am good at.
I would love an opportunity to explore positions within your organization where I can use my skills in a positive way.
Thank you for your consideration.
And now, here’s my resume (for any potential employers reading this)
Objective: I am looking for an opportunity to work for a company where I can utilize computers to solve tasks and help meet company goals.
o Assist website developer with search engine optimization
o Developed websites
o Research data to enhance customer product
o Editing copy
o Built multiple animations for web content
One of the best resumes I’ve seen is my best friend in Las Vegas. It’s no wonder that his las vegas special use permit business is running so well, with someone as talented as him at the head of it. I still need some volunteer hours, however. It would also be nice to have extracurricular activities since I know employers are always looking for that. My mom and I have actually been looking into a place called Habit for Humanity, because they teach you skills that a skilled worker would use in building a house or something, but they do it for free.
