Discovering the career that's right for you

After you've assessed your career choices, rated your skills, and gotten focused on your career plan, it's time to think about your image. An employer's picture of you starts when they receive your resume and goes all the way past the interview to the follow-up stage. It's crucial to think about each component as you try to get your foot in the door for career success.
Creating Yourself As a Brand
From the moment you submit your resume, you are marketing yourself--your skills, values, and interests, but also your ability to interest an employer. Your resume should be polished and tailored to every job. Interviewing skills come with practice. Refining your "sales pitch" with a career coach can help you be more confident about landing a job.

You need: a Professional Summary which highlights your best skills and abilities; a Task+Value=Outcome job history showing an employer what you can offer them; a tailored resume for each job you're applying for. These great career sites can help you create a memorable resume that gets results!
