Recruiters and managers screen candidates by looking at their resumes; therefore your resume must be up-to-date, complete, free of errors, and be targeted based on the position you are seeking. Since resumes are read quickly (most resumes are read for only 5 to 7 seconds!), the information must be clearly placed where recruiters can easily find it.

Cover Letters, Thank You Notes & Emails
In today’s technologically advanced society, your written communication is critical. Your letters and emails will be one of the first indicators to potential employers of your ability to communicate. Most applications for job openings require a cover letter. Once the final candidates have been selected, a cover letter may determine whether you are called in for an interview.
