Your resume looks its best when it has perfect grammar, name and contact details, chronological job history, brief descriptions of your previous work and relevant achievements. NCSL looks for a well-structured document that gets the message across in a concise way. Your resume should be a snippet of your complete profile, not a full list of everything you’ve ever done. Use it to highlight your accomplishments, skills and attributes you’ll bring to NCSL. Job application magic happens when you build a credible narrative foundation.
Use the motivation (cover) letter to make your reason for applying crystal clear. NCSL's hiring managers want to learn how your background fits the open position and what makes you, you. Tailor your letter to the job requirements and explain in detail how your passion, drive and enthusiasm make you the right person for the job.
