Getting the Right Job (01:25)
After obtaining the necessary education and skills, getting the right job requires a resume and job interview. Having a world-class resume and knowing how to interview allows job candidates to communicate what they know and do well.
Job Interview and Resume (01:34)
The goal of the job interview is a candidate's chance to impress the perspective employer with his or her skills and enthusiasm. Candidates also need a well-written resume.
Creating "Golden" Resumes (03:09)
Wendy Enelow, author and career consultant, recommends having a resume that stands out in a professional manner, uses keywords that pertain to the job, omits job references, avoids spelling errors, and tells the truth.
Composing a Resume (02:27)
Resumes should begin with the candidate's name and contact information. Other items include a summary of skills and experiences, employment experience, and education experience. The resume should highlight the candidate's strengths.
Writing a Cover Letter (01:13)
The cover letter should first state why the candidate is writing. Next, it should include an overview of the candidate's most relevant skills and experiences. Finally, the candidate should write a brief closing.
Job Interview (03:40)
Candidates need to show up on time for a job interview and look presentable without tattoos or piercings showing. Good posture and enthusiasm indicate the candidate's interest in the job. Asking about salary is not part of the first interview.
Post-Interview: Thank You Note (01:51)
After an interview, a candidate should send a thank you letter to thank the interviewer for his or her time. It should then restate the candidate's interest in the job and highlight skills and experiences that were hot issues in the interview.
