Cover Letter & Resume Online Resources

Your most valuable marketing tool when looking for a job is your resume. A cover letter will work alongside your resume to help you introduce yourself, define why you are applying for the position and highlight a few of your experiences or skills, and request an opportunity to meet with the potential employer. Your resume is often the first means hiring committees have to judge you. It alone does not get you the job, of course. The main goal of a powerful resume is to get you an interview and / or move you forward in the search process.
