Résumés and Letters
Your résumé is a marketing tool to let an employer know about your skills and experiences and how they fit the specific duties and responsibilities of a position. The résumé’s job is to get you an interview. We know that writing a résumé can be intimidating. It’s hard to know what to write and what information should or should not be included. Remember that your résumé is YOURS. It should be appropriate to your situation and best reflect your job history and target position.
We have assembled multiple résumé tips and guidelines to assist you in putting together this important marketing tool designed to sell your strengths, accomplishments, education and skills to potential employers.
