By Mark Terry, Bio Breaking News Staff There are generally three components to applying for a job—the cover letter, the resume or CV, and the actual interview. The cover letter grabs the interest of the recruiter, human resources executive or employer enough so they look at your resume.
Your resume is your highlight reel, and should be designed to get them interested enough to call you in for an interview.
The next sentence should support your qualifications for the position.
For example: My research into the molecular basis of cancer with an emphasis on the role of transcription factors and chromatin modification on tumor cell growth uniquely qualifies me for this position. It would be appropriate as well to add another sentence or two detailing your research topics, the title of your thesis, and any particular skills, especially if they support your qualifications for the position you’re applying for.
