A General Resume may give out particulars of your skills and accomplishment, but it’s essential that you have an accompanying cover letter to go along with it.

A good cover letter, though, should not duplicate the contents of a resume. To guide you through a good General Resume’s exact content, the following details should be included:
Name and basic contact details like address, phone number and e-mail address
The most important part of the resume. It tells what kind of job you are seeking, what your goal is and how you intend to accomplish that goal; any ambitions and thrusts in your profession.
Educational background and qualifications, course you graduated in from what college, plus the list of honors and awards if you have any. You can also include your general or grade point average (GPA) score as additional eligibility.
