Your resume is your ticket to the interview!

Graham shows you how to strategically tailor and personalize your hiring documents for the companies you target.  Remember, first impressions matter. Hiring professionals will spend approximately 8 seconds – that’s right, 8! – scanning your resume before determining if it winds up in the ‘Yes Pile’ or the ‘No Pile’.  Hint: they’re looking for much more than the right major – they’re looking for relevant experience! Once your resume is in the ‘Yes Pile’, the hiring team will take a closer look at how you’ve positioned the value you can bring, and hopefully, you’ll be moved forward for an interview.  We’ll show you what hiring teams are looking for in resumes and cover letters in terms of both format and content. Ensure that your application documents make the cut and show the value you’ll add to an organization!
