A resume is the first piece of information about you a potential employer will see. It’s crucial that it is prepared well. Meeting with a career counselor to review your resume is a great way to get specific feedback and tailor the document to the position you want. In addition to a resume, employers will typically ask you to submit a list of references when you apply to a position. The list should be comprised of people who know you well and can speak to your skills and abilities. Be sure to choose them wisely.
You should always submit a cover letter when applying to a position. This serves as a way for you to describe the skills and experiences you have that an employer is looking for. A cover letter is your chance to describe the ways in which you are a great fit for the position.
After an interview, always follow up with a thank you note to the interviewers. It shows that you are polite and appreciate the interviewers’ time and consideration.
