HINT:

When you write your Resume / Cover letter, do not make it too mainstream or follow the rules of how they are written too strickly. Instead, put a pinch of yourself. Write them in a way that will help us understand your true personality and intentions. Avoid using superlatives like "I thrive in working in a fast-paced environment" or " I am a team player". You don't know what we need, so do not pretend to be someone you are not. Instead, be as much yourself as you can be. This is your only way to stand out from the crowd! :)

In short, do not sound cheesy... The cheese smells a mile away!
