There are many fantastic job openings currently posted within M’Chigeeng First Nation…Be sure to have a peek through all the current postings, as your dream job just might be waiting for you!
When applying for a new position, make sure your resume is up to date. Be sure to highlight your relevant education and work experience by listing it at the top of your resume. While it’s great to showcase all your experience, try to limit your resume to no more than two pages; Any longer and you risk losing the attention of the person reading it. Your resume should be in a legible font such as Times New Roman or Arial — If it’s difficult to read, hiring managers might become biased against your application, even if you’re qualified! Keep the font size at 11-12pt for normal text, and 14-16 for section titles and headers.
Look for jobs that fit your strengths and skill set, and make sure your resume and cover letter highlights why you would be perfect for the position. Resumes should include your name, contact information and email address at the very top, followed by your educational background or training, your work history (highlighting responsibilities and achievements) and your special knowledge and skills. You might be tempted to use the same resume and cover letter for each job application, but you’re more likely to get an interview if you adjust your resume for each individual job; Focus specifically on the skills and education you have that are directly related to the job you’re applying for!
In your cover letter, explain why you are the ideal person for the job you’re applying for, and be sure to refer to your education and experience! Use an enthusiastic tone — the cover letter is your chance to sell yourself! Explain why you’re interested in the position, how you’ll be an asset to the organization, why you’re the best person for the job, and what you hope to learn.
