Some Things You Have To Spell Out

Of course the interview wants to know if you have the skills and experience to handle the position. And they want to know that you will actually do the job once you are in the position. “Every bullet point on your resume should demonstrate what you could do if you were hired…Spell out how your experience directly relates to the job for which you’re applying—be explicit about how your management of the well digging exemplified your ability to organize, motivate, and stay on schedule, and list the leadership skills you developed while leading the project,” reported Idealist Careers.

Also demonstrate you have a solid work ethic to go along with your skills. “Are you committed to the mission and/or central issue of the organization? Have you already demonstrated the work ethic necessary to succeed in this specific line of work? To nonprofit employers, your demonstrated commitment to and passion for the cause is important to your credibility,” reported Idealist Careers.
