What's going on inside your head?

 

Write a killer, targeted resume.

  • Your chance to really shine is your interview, but your resume should show that you have the skills to back it up. It'll also help to include keywords in your resume that pertain to your future job's description.

How awesome is your resume?

 

Diversify.

Continue to develop and strengthen the skills you have and add new ones as well. You never know when they'll come in handy. An employer loves a well-rounded employee.

  • For instance, if you're interviewing for a sales job, your employer may like the fact that you also have skills in marketing and advertising.

What skills do you want to (or need to) learn?

 

Remember, relax and be yourself!

If you're fully prepared and patient, you'll eventually find the job that's perfect for you.
