Note: Make sure you check your spelling and grammar, and that you are sending the resume in the format requested by the employer.

Don't Forget Your Cover Letter:

Want to include a Cover Letter but, you don't know where to start? Check out this sample that includes the basic elements: the position you are applying for, the skills you have that make you a great fit for this position, a little about your background and how you can be reached.

Always Say Thank You:
