Develop Your Job Search Skills
The purpose of the resume is to get an interview. They are not meant to serve the same purpose as a job application. You may need to prepare several resumes to target specific jobs. Among other things, resumes show your skills and accomplishments, jobs you have held, and the education you have completed.
- Cover Letters
A cover letter is an introduction of yourself, the reason you are writing, and to highlight key qualifications that make you the best candidate for the position. A cover letter or letter of interest should always be included when you are emailing, mailing, or faxing your resume.
You’ve heard it before: “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” Networking is the key to finding hidden jobs and landing hot jobs before the rest of the world knows they’re available.
