Prepare for Search
Before reaching out to an employer, you want to make sure your resume, cover letter, and interview skills are the best they can be. We can help with the online resources, tips, and presentations via the tabs below. Also reach out to our counselors, who can meet with you one-on-one to develop search strategies, review your resume and prepare for your interviews.
Your resume is a key document in your job search as it represents you to employers before they meet you in person. Its purpose is to get you invited for an interview, and therefore it must describe how your skills, experience and training match a job’s requirements and meet an employer’s needs.
To get help with writing a resume that will create a strong impression, we suggest that you take advantage of the following services:
A cover letter promotes you, presenting a compelling case that you have the interest, skills, training and experience to perform well in a given job or internship. Cover letters are best when you can articulate the fit between the company/position needs and your experiences.
The interview is your opportunity to convince the employer that you are the most qualified candidate for the job opening. Thorough preparation is the best way to ensure a successful interview. Here are some useful tools and services that will help you prepare.
