How To Be Successful

Cover Letter

A good cover letter will captivate the recruiter to look further at your resume. It should illustrate your communication skills and convince the employer of your ability, interest and suitability for the position.

A cover letter should include the following items:

  • Specify what position you are applying and how you learnt of the position
  • Specify why you want to work at SaskEnergy
  • Summarize how your education, experience, and skills will be an asset to the Company
  • Include contact information

Resume

A good resume is the stepping stone to getting an interview. It should be short, concise and easy to read. A rule of thumb is that it should not be longer than two pages. 

Things to consider when writing a resume:

  • Ensure experiences and skills support position you are applying on
  • Clearly demonstrate your value and highlight accomplishments
  • Be honest about your skills and abilities
  • Information should be well organized
  • Resume should be error free
  • Resume should be attractive to the eye
