  • Provide your current address, phone numbers and email address.
  • Explain how the opportunity aligns with your career goals and objectives.
  • Summarize your relevant qualifications and achievements. They should highlight the experience, skills, community activities and personality traits that make you the perfect fit for the job.
  • Add three or four bullet points to describe your key skills and experience, explaining how they were used and developed. Highlight your most relevant expertise first, and be specific.
  • List your work experience, starting with your most recent job, adding three or four bullet point statements regarding the duties of that role.
  • List your education, including any diplomas, certificates or other relevant completed training or education.
  • Tell us about your professional affiliations, including community and volunteer activities.
  • List any work-related, academic, volunteer or other awards you’ve received.
