A resume is a summary of your abilities, accomplishments, and experiences. It is a persuasive document which will help convince a potential employer to request an interview. We recommend that you have a career counselor review your resume before sending it out.
A cover letter is an opportunity to fill in the blanks from your resume. Through a cover letter, you set yourself apart from other candidates by speaking to a depth of experience or interest that may not be apparent from a resume.
Although the interview process is a nerve-wracking experience for many, it is essentially a mutual exchange of information. Though employers are learning more about you during the interview, don’t forget that the interview is also a valuable opportunity to find out more about the organization.
Effective networking can often lead to a job offer, and is also a great way for you to learn more about a specific career, and connect with individuals within your field of interests. Tools such as LinkedIn can help you develop professional relationships and create a network of professional resources.
