READY YOUR RESUME

A resume that reads well will get noticed.

A good resume

  • is written clearly and concisely with no grammatical errors.

  • is written with no gaps in employment without explanation.

  • is written in the third person.

  • if applicable, has complete information on education such as the name of the institution, location, month/year of graduation, and the area of study.

GATHER YOUR CREDENTIALS

Know what skills to highlight in conversation.

  • There are details you might not include on your resume—like specific tools and databases you have used—that you should be ready to discuss in the appropriate environment

ARTICULATE YOUR VALUE

Take time to prepare your thoughts.  

  • What are your primary skill sets?

  • Do you have experience in cable writing or briefing?

  • What other skills, certifications, or training do you have that can support the client?

SET YOUR GOALS

Know what is important to you.  

 

  • Easy commute?

  • Flexible Schedule?

  • Specific job tasks?

  • Particular fringe benefits?

 

While it is unlikely that any job will be 100% perfect, knowing what is most important to you will help us find the right position for you that meets your highest priority work-life goals.
