With a resume...
You can provide a summary of your skills, abilities and accomplishments. It’s a tool to spark employers' interest and secure yourself an interview. Create a professional profile that emphasizes transferable skills (oral and written communication, leadership, project management, collaboration, education, etc.). Capture how your skills and work experience match the job you are looking to land. Remember, your resume is your snapshot...not your autobiography. Let us guide you through the process.
By preparing for an interview...
You can ease the stress of talking about yourself and your work experiences with a potential employer. Having someone coach and evaluate your personality, attitude, strengths, weaknesses and attire could increase your chances of landing the job you want. On average, it only takes an interviewer 30 minutes to decide if you are hired, so why not prepare for your 30 minutes of fame!
