  • Refine Your Resume and Cover Letter

Your resume and cover letter are the first impression that a potential employer will have of you. Therefore, it is important that they are well-written, and showcase your skills and experience. Take time to review your resume and cover letter and make sure they are tailored to the specific job you are applying for.
