In most cases, when an individual is being called for an interview, one is advised to carry along 'supporting' or any other 'relevant' documents.
This could cause confusion because the statement is not specific to what you should carry along. You might be frightened that may you might carry an irrelevant document that your employer might not be interested in.
Knowing what to include and how to include it will help you keep your chances of landing the role.
A resume, cover letter, educational transcripts, writing samples, Veterans' Preference documents, portfolios, certifications, a reference list, letters of recommendation, and other documentation specified in the job posting can be submitted as supporting documentation for a job application.
Feel free to inquire with the hiring manager or HR representative about the type of supporting documentation to submit. Follow all of their instructions on what to send and how to send it.
Reason for carrying supporting documents
Obtaining supporting documentation from candidates aids in the evaluation of applications. Many employers believe that a resume (or a resume and cover letter) is sufficient. Other employers, on the other hand, may require more information to determine which applicants to interview and eventually hire. When applying for a job, you need to consider this.
The following should be considered:
A resume presents a concise picture of your skills and qualifications for a specific position, its length is dictated by years of experience (generally 1-2 pages). This is different from a Curriculum Vitae (CV) which basically highlights your academic credentials.
2. Cover letter
When applying for a job, a cover letter allows you to show your personal side while also demonstrating why hiring you is a wise decision. Cover letters should be three paragraphs long and include specific examples from your previous experience that demonstrate your qualifications for the position.
3. Reference list
With a space between each reference, list your references' names, job titles, companies, and contact information. Include at least three professional references who can attest to your ability to perform the job.
4. Letters of recommendation
A letter of recommendation is a letter written on an applicant's behalf by someone who can attest to that person's academic or professional performance. Typically, this letter is sent to an admissions officer or hiring manager who is considering a candidate for admission or employment.
This is a certified record of a student's progress through a course of study that includes all courses attempted, grades earned, and degrees and awards conferred
It is a collection of work and other documents that demonstrate your skills to prospective employers It can be made in either digital or physical form.
7. Writing samples
They are intended to determine whether you have the necessary writing and, in some cases, research skills to complete the tasks of the position you seek.
These are documents that state an official fact or demonstrate program completion.
Here's a job that you test the above recommendations. Good luck!
