Your resume communicates your qualifications and your brand – who you are and what makes you different – to employers and recruiters. In a tough job market, you need a resume that helps you stand out in a sea of applicants.

A great resume:

  • Grabs the attention of employers and recruiters.
  • Sells your strongest skills and accomplishments.
  • Shows why you’re a potential match for a position or project.
  • Communicates both your current capabilities and potential.
  • Helps you take the next step in your career.
  • And most importantly, gets you the interview.

You also need a great cover letter

A cover letter is just as important as your resume.  It is an opportunity to personalize your resume and sell your skills. These are the important sections in every cover letter:

  • Heading and greeting.
  • Opening and introduction.
  • Body copy.
  • Assertive closing.
