What are your best resume or interview tips?

Rebecca stresses the importance of being specific on resumes, tailoring it to the job you’re applying for, and only including relevant skills. Jenn agrees, “your resume is your introduction to the employer. Give them a taste of your knowledge and give them a reason to call you.” For interviews, preparation is key! Manuela recommends researching the company and reviewing interview questions. Alisha adds that “confidence and experience speak volumes in an interview!”

“We are a free service, we are here to help, and it never hurts to obtain all information available and see what your options are!” Chris, a program administrator says. Susan’s advice is “the best way to get things done is to simply begin!”
