Resume Toolkit: March 2019
If you're no rookie when it comes to filling out applications and going through interviews, you already know it takes a lot more than luck to land your dream job. It takes networking, self-promotion, and maybe even a little bit of pizzazz. Still, an excellent resume listing your experiences and accomplishments, outlined in the lucky color green, might just be able to help you strike gold in your job search.
This month's resume toolkit is very straight-forward and therefore great for students and recent graduates. It is creative without being too in-your-face about it, and the fonts can be changed to convey your personality. Although the process of summing up your background into resumes and cover letters can be daunting, we hope that this toolkit makes it an easier and more enjoyable process.
