Contractions like "don't" and "I'm" are appropriate on a cover letter and resume.

This is a great sentence for a cover letter:
"I am really hard working, and I am very good at problem solving."

Choose the best sentence for a cover letter.

Which sentence is an example of a passive sentence?

Make this sentence stronger:
"I believe I am the best person for this job."

On resumes, we write about previous work experiences in bullet points. Which of the following sentences is the most appropriate on a resume?

You should edit/check your resume for grammar and spelling mistakes before you send it to a company.

You should always use the biggest words on your resume to sound smart.
For example, you can write "I am indefatigable in my daily affairs." instead of "I am hard-working."

Power verbs are great to use on your cover letter or resume.

On a cover letter, we do not use paragraphs.

Hello! I would like to ask you about using present perfect. If I tell about my achievements and results, can I use present perfect instead past simple? For example:
(I) have implemented new planning process.
Or it will be mistake?

Tuesday, November 27th 2018

    I think that you can do that because even the present perfect can be used to express things of the past.

Thanks, Mam for your great lesson. The problem comes when we start writing the intro part of a cover letter. It is the most important and main part to make ourselves noticeable to someone. For the intro part, we need the power verb as you told on the video. In this part we some smart sentence but we are failed most of the time on that part.

It would be extremely helpful for us if you suggest us how we could structure a sentence with some powerful word and how to practice this?

Sunday, January 20th 2019

I am really confused about the third question.. Could anyone explain it to me please.

Tuesday, February 5th 2019

    “I increased sales by 20%.” better than others
    + active voice ( I do…)
    + strong word (increased)
    + no using slang

    Tuesday, February 12th 2019

    I think that the structure differenc between a resume and cover letter explains the difference in grammer applied to them. In my opinion, cover letter is a bit like an essay, you should use full sentences and expresstions in a cover letter should use active voice as teacher Emma said in the video. while expressions in a resume are intended to let the interviewer know the achievements you got in your past working experience. Use bullet points and write down your achievements briefly without a subject. Hope it won’t make you more confused.

    Friday, April 12th 2019

    the verb increased is more strong than others (made, ….)

    Friday, October 18th 2019

100% Thanks
