Resumes and Interviews

Your resume is one of the essential tools needed to land an interview. It must be an easy-to-read and well-structured presentation which is targeted toward the job for which you are applying.

Interviews are your opportunity to sell yourself to a potential employer and convince them that you are the best person for the job. Preparation is key to a successful interview! Practice interviewing skills and answering common behavioral interview questions and research the company as much as possible.
