A Resume is a formal document that lists a job applicant's work experience, education and skills. It demonstrates an applicant's qualifications for a particular job.

A Cover Letter is always submitted along with the Resume, explaining the applicant's credentials and interests in the position.

Resumes and Cover Letters are both extremely important in determining whether the applicant obtain an interview for the position. Jump to this guide's section for resumes and cover letters for more information and resources.

Interviewing is a conversation that utilizes your persuasion and communication skills to demonstrate your personality, knowledge, skills, abilities, and fit to a position.

Interviewing is usually organized by a recruiter used to evaluate a potential employee at a company. It is very important for candidates to be well-prepared for the interview.

Jump to this guide's interview section to find more information and resources.

Networking is an important career development skill that is worth developing. In its simplest form, networking involves having a “career conversation” with someone for the purpose of exploring careers or job searching. Networking is considered the most effective way of finding a job as many job vacancies are never advertised but instead filled through personal or professional referrals. Networking is also one of the best ways to expand your career knowledge and interests.
