Resume and Application

Before starting your search, have someone review your resume or use a career resource. Look for consistency in formatting, correct usage of tenses, detailed and accurate information about work experience and education.

Tailor your resume or application to highlight previous work experiences or education obtained that is specific to the job for which you are applying.

List important or most applicable skills toward the top of your resume.

Look at the job posting requirements and preferred skills. Ensure that your resume reflects the requirements of the job (if you have them) and preferred skills the hiring manager seeks to be a competitive candidate.

Some positions may require taking a test before being selected for an interview. If this is the case, the recruiter will communicate with you about the test and when it must be completed.
