Tips and Tools


Resume Writing

A good resume is imperative when seeking a job or internship! The resume shows your qualifications and hopefully gets you a job interview. Most employers spend less than five minutes reviewing resumes so make sure yours is outstanding!

Employers seek talented candidates who are creative, free thinkers. Keep in mind that a “fill-in-the-blank” resume undercuts the very image you are attempting to create. Suggestion: don't use a resume Wizard to create your resume. Instead, use the tips below to begin your new resume or to polish your existing resume.



Interviewing is both art and science. To be most successful, understand the process, prepare for known situations, and anticipate the next move.

The purpose of an interview between a candidate and a prospective employer is to exchange information. Candidates have particular qualifications, skills and strengths to offer and prospective employers want to purchase certain qualifications, skills and strengths that will fill their needs. Candidates and employers must be certain that the match is correct.
