Job Search Tools and Tips

Your resume is your first introduction to a potential employer and is primary tool they use to decide whether to invite candidates for interview. It is your chance to sell yourself, your skills, and what makes you unique to the employer. It is what is going to set you apart from the other applicants.

What tools and resources are you using in your job search? Make sure you're optimizing your chance of finding employment by making the best of each job search opportunity. 

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so make sure your interview skills are practiced and polished before you get in front of a prospective employer.
