Your resume and cover letter may be the most important documents that you write in your working life. From only a handful of pages you are to be judged; you may be found worthy — to be granted that interview or receive that funding; to be credible to complete some work — or deemed insufficient. These pages must persuade the reader to want to meet with you… and in only the span of a handful of pages. That is a great deal of pressure to place on your words.
To create these documents in a compelling and engaging manner requires strategy and understanding of their purpose, some concepts on how to persuade your reader, and, yes, even some artistic licence. On-line templates — while easy — are unlikely to captivate or arrest your reader’s attention.
