It is very important for you to stand out when applying for jobs, especially right out of college.
The main component that employers are looking for is experience! Your resume is one of the most essential tools in your path to obtaining a job. You will need an exceptional resume, which can make the difference between being rejected or getting to round two.
There are a lot of sites that offer valuable information about how to build an outstanding resume. Resume-now.com provides you with a step-by-step way of creating your resume. It’s free and provides one-click designs, multiple formats, and cover letters. In addition to this valuable tool, be sure to check your resume against these seven vitally important resume tips provided by Assessment.com: The 2014 Ultimate Career Guide.
When you talk about your job, tell your prospective employer what you do and what you’re responsible for. You could even tell them what you accomplished in your role, e.g. “Sales rose 5 percent under my management.” This gives your potential employer evidence of your value to their company – and the possible value you could bring to them.
Cover letters are very important and if you are wondering whether you need to write a cover letter, the answer is yes! Please do not confuse a cover letter with a cover page; they are not the same! A cover letter is your chance to explain why you are a great fit for the job. Again, there are many great resources and sample cover letters. I suggest you go to Resume-now.com, one of many online resources.
