Prepare a Resume / Cover Letter

Your resume is usually one of the first things a prospective employer sees. Its purpose is to present your skills, achievements, and qualifications as effectively and briefly as possible. Your resume is your opportunity to market an interesting and exciting “product”—YOU!

The cover letter is your chance to connect the dots between your qualifications and what the employer wants or needs. You know exactly why you’re qualified for the position, but the employer may need help understanding what makes you such a unique, strong candidate. In a cover letter, you can spell this out for them!
