A lot of fresh graduates and job applicants sometimes do not get follow up calls from the HR departments where they have applied. They start evaluating and blaming themselves for the circumstances of not getting a job when they badly need one. And many among such individuals do not realize that there is nothing wrong about them. The only things which need to be evaluated and redesigned are their resumes and cover letters, really.
All of you must know that a resume becomes a part of the job applicant and whenever it is sent to the HR department, it should represent that person perfectly. Also know that whoever has a well-designed resume and cover letter with to the point content is half way through the process and he can impress his potential employers to select him among other job applicants.
The important points which are making the resume design as well as the cover letter attention grabbing are the colors, sectioning and usage of icons and all of these will help you make your first impression a great one. These psd mock-ups can also be used for presentation purposes in which the design process of resumes can be demonstrated.
Now comes the cover letter part which is mostly about the content so make sure that the reason and interest of applying for a job are mentioned. The background color of the content area is left white on purpose so that the content is clearly visible. And a thin grey border is there to create harmony in the overall look.
