Resume Writing

Your resume brands your strengths, skills, and experiences to a potential employer.  The content and organization of your resume are critical to catching the employer's attention, especially since employers spend an average of 20-30 seconds reviewing a resume.  Therefore, take time to carefully craft a resume that effectively markets the value you have to offer and your understanding of the position for which you're applying.

To get started, review our RESUME WRITING GUIDE.
