Tips for preparing materials
Don't go into battle without the right ammo. Be prepared! Before you start your job search make sure to have your materials for applications ready to go. Below you'll find resume and cover letter templates to the right to help you construct your own dynamic materials.
Don't forget that interviewing is a skill that requires practice. Review your strengths and weaknesses during interviewing and work to get better.
Where to start?
Once you've fine-tuned your resume and cover letter it's time to start applying for jobs. Career Services recommend you upload your application materials on College Central. This website will display your information for potential employers and give you access to up-to-date job listings in your field.
