PREPARE RESUME & INTERVIEW
The purpose of the resume is to make a positive first impression to get the coveted job interview. It is a one to two-page document that shows who you are at your best. It is your own personal marketing piece designed to give a picture of who you are, what you have accomplished and your ability to successfully perform meaningful work. In addition to the industry specific knowledge and skills employers look for in your resume, you can’t go wrong with emphasizing the attributes all employers need such as leadership, problem solving and a positive outlook. Your resume is not a complete job history; target your resume to a specific position or industry. Your resume is a living document that will grow and change to reflect your own development.
