STRUGGLING WITH CV?
A resume or CV is a brief summary of your qualifications, education, and experiences relevant to your job search objective. The purpose of a resume is to obtain an interview.

WONDER WHAT COVER LETTER IS?
The cover letter provides you with an opportunity to introduce yourself and state your objective, personalize your resume, and highlight information that addresses the needs and interests of the employer. Bear in mind that letters you write not only convey your interest and qualifications, but also give the employer an opportunity to observe your attentiveness to detail, spelling, grammar, and the overall quality of your written communication. Flaws in your letters will often be interpreted as flaws in your qualifications. Different countries use different terms to describe the specific aspects of what a resume/CV should contain. For example, "cover letters" are called "letters of interest" in some countries and "motivation letters" in others.
