Knowing the correct format for correspondence can be difficult. Creating an easy to read resume that highlights your talents as a senior caregiver and an accompanying cover letter about your work experience makes a big difference in getting hired. The Pages app features resume, letter and other templates for easy creation of professional documents.
As a caregiver, your resume should reflect all of your past work experience and any training you've completed. There are six different resume template choices in the Pages app, so users can select the one that best represents the feel they'd like for the information they're sharing. Most are generally alike. The elegant resume and the informal resume both use the same basic components for the body, offering users the chance to define their professional summary before highlighting work experience, education/training, skills, etc.
Once a template is selected, the entire resume template can be edited on the user's smartphone. The template comes with filler text that can be deleted, replaced and customized with the user's experience. If a particular section isn't applicable, users can easily delete it from the template as well. Once all of the user's experience is filled in, the options to print, share via iCloud or e-mail make it easy for caregivers to send their resume whichever way is most convenient for them. The e-mail option includes a conversion to PDF, which is a format that can be opened on virtually any device.
The other template options include letters, which can be used to create a cover letter detailing why you'd like a specific position as a caregiver. Other templates include envelopes, business cards, greeting cards, etc. for other personal and professional uses.
The pages app is available for free for Apple platforms.
