- Prepare resume
Most applications for jobs require a resume at a minimum. A resume is a description of your education, professional experiences, volunteer activities, general interests and personal strengths. A resume should outline your technical, transferable and personal skills relevant to the position you are applying for.
- Prepare cover letter
A cover letter should complement, not duplicate, your resume. The goal of the cover letter is to clarify and interpret the facts of the resume. A cover letter should highlight experiences and competencies that relate to the position for which you are applying. A cover letter is often your initial written contact with a potential employer, creating a critical first impression.
