Writing a Resume

An introduction to resume writing that will teach you how to provide your qualifications and skills to potential employers. There are several ways of organizing a good resume, depending on your experience, the type of work you want to pursue, and the overall style you would like to use to convey your information to potential employers.

 

Cover Letters

A cover letter is your personal introduction to a prospective employer. While a résumé is a document itemizing your abilities and experiences, a cover letter is your chance to really emphasize why and how you would be an excellent fit within the organization, letting your personality come through in your choice of words. A cover letter is an opportunity to be direct in your desire to work for an organization while also succinctly explaining what you can offer the company.

 

Interview Prep

A mock interview, also known as a practice interview, is a simulation of an actual job interview. It provides you with an opportunity to practice for an interview and receive feedback. A typical mock interview is a practice job interview held with a professional career counselor. A mock interview helps you learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve your communication skills and reduce your stress before an actual job interview
