Assignment: Résumé and Job-Application Letter
Certain details attract the attention of interviewers, whereas other aspects of job-search communication routinely disqualify applicants. Savvy job hunters know how to highlight strengths and learn how to deal with any difficulties in their work background. It is also important to customize résumés and application letters for each specific job description. Many companies now prefer online résumés, which differ slightly from the traditional hardcopy résumé. Job seekers can also use online job boards and databases to their advantage.
