To present themselves in a better light, most people, when applying for a job, draw attention to some of their social skills which are related to the working environment, such as being able to work well in a team (it's quite a significant point to make), handling pressure, working effectively within a deadline, punctuality or perfectionism. Some add ambition to that list, whilst others would rather steer clear of that term, as it might transpire a lack of modesty and aspirations to step up the ladder in a company that hasn't hired them yet. In other words, it might spell "I'm after your job".
Applying for jobs is a process that nearly everyone will have to undertake to land a position to advance a career. There are a variety of tools that are useful when a job seeker is applying for jobs. In addition to a standard CV or resume, cover letters can help candidates better explain their qualifications, introduce themselves to potential employers and assist them in getting noticed. Job applications can be filed based on advertised openings or they can be unsolicited. In both circumstances, it is useful to include a cover letter and a resume or CV so potential employers can easily ascertain a candidate’s qualifications.
