Building Your Resume
Alexa, a job seeker, was well prepared and exceptionally qualified, but she didn’t get the interview. Why not?
A likely reason is that her resume did not demonstrate what the employer needed for the position. Or, the person reading it did not see the qualities the company was looking for in a successful job candidate.
A resume is often the first picture an employer has of you unless you were referred by a networking contact. A resume and cover letter must sell you - often in 15-30 seconds.
Doing research and customizing the resume to the needs of the company are essential.
