Resumes & Interviews
The resume and interview is your first way to market yourself to a company for employment. It is very important that you take the time- and go through several drafts- to not only make these introductions properly reflect you, but also to show your professionalism through proper communication skills.
|Your Resume||The Interview|
|Compile all the relevant information||*Be On Time!|
|Format the information to make it easy to read||*Dress Professionally|
|Submit it with applications||*Turn off your Phone|
|Resume worksheet||*Know about the job!|
|Practice Interview Questions|
Some jobs will require that you answer their questions or complete a cover letter. Again, these communications should serve to show how you are the best fit for the job and MUST have good grammar and attention to detail.
