Job hunting tips

What you do before you get the interview for the perfect job is just as important - if not more important - than having the perfect interview experience. The research you do on your companies of interest, the style and tone of your resume and cover letter, the search databases you use for finding opportunities, who you've networked with, and what you plan to wear when you meet prospective employers, are only a few of the important tasks ahead of you before the interview even begins. In other words, finding work is work.

Resume / Cover Letter Assistance

If you don't have a working resume and general cover letter you should have one! But ask ten people how to write a resume and you'll get eleven very confident answers! The truth is there are many ways and lots of people willing to help, but no two resumes will ever be the same due to differences in personalities, educational and professional experiences, and career intentions. Go to: Microsoft Office Online for some good template starters for resumes and for Cover Letter guidance.
