A resume is a summary of your abilities, accomplishments, and experiences. Its main purpose is to persuade a potential employer to bring you in for an interview. We recommend that you have a career counselor critique your resume before using it. It is never too early to get started!
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 showing a potential employer the depth of your experience.
Although the interview process is an anxiety-provoking experience for many people, it is actually nothing more than a mutual exchange of information. This is your opportunity to learn about the job and the employer, as much as it is their opportunity to learn about you.
Networking is a great opportunity 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. It is highly possible that you can get your job from effective networking!
