Practice Makes Perfect
The thought of interviewing for a job makes most of us nervous. The key to interviewing success is preparation. The more prepared you are, the more confident you will feel. Even with the strongest résumé, job seekers still need to wow a potential employer at a job interview. For some, that may not come naturally. The Career and Transfer Center offers an on-demand online program - Perfect Interview - that allows any job seeker the opportunity to practice their interviewing skills and receive tips to help them prepare.
What is Perfect Interview?

Practice answering a variety of interview questions and record your responses using your webcam for immediate review.

Telling Your Story:
Creating a Great Resume
Your resume is the key piece of your job application. It is the most important document you'll submit in your job search. It's your front-line fighter, so to speak, as it's your first opportunity to present yourself to a potential employer.
A strong resume can help you stand out from the crowd, but a weak resume can remove you from the running, so you want to do all you can to make sure your resume is the best it can be.
Let Career Coach help you with that resume!
