Remember those tedious handwriting classes in school? Dot your I's and cross your T's. The same attention to details that your teachers and parents drilled into you during your elementary school years is the same attention to detail you need when preparing your job search paperwork. First impressions last a lifetime; be sure to give your future employer the impression you want to convey.
If given the opportunity to type rather than handwrite, take advantage of it. Job applications often ask tedious and mundane questions. No matter what the content of an application, take the time to fill it out correctly and neatly. If you cannot type out the application, be sure to print instead of handwrite. If you make a mistake, start over. Do not cross out or white-out a mistake. Nothing looks worse than a job application with eraser marks all over the page and white-out globs inside the application fields.
As for the infamous resume, don't be afraid of this often debated document. If you ask five different people how to write a resume you will probably get 10 different opinions. Writing a resume is a very subjective process. It is your job to make sure your resume conveys your skills and achievements in a clear and concise manner. Remember, if you do not tell your interviewer about your successes, they have no way of knowing what you have done or what you are capable of achieving. Nothing makes a poorer impression than a resume containing errors. Double and triple check your resume for errors and omissions. Spell check your resume, hand check your resume, and then have a friend check your resume. It is difficult to check one's own work, so don't be afraid to have someone review it for you. A resume should be the finest piece of written work you can produce!
Paying attention to the details will benefit you during your job search and throughout your entire career. Employers respect employees who take the time to guarantee the quality of their work. Paying attention to the details shows your willingness to go the extra mile. You want to be the person the director turns to for important projects. A manager's greatest asset is a team member who can get a job done in short order with 100 percent accuracy!
