the job. Before you submit your resume and
cover letter, it is important that you edit it more
than once and have someone else edit it.

After you submit your applications, you will

interview. Many companies have multiple
rounds of interviews and you may find that your
first interview is over the phone.

Prepare yourself for the interview and try to calm your nerves. Talk succinctly and choose your
words wisely throughout the interview.

Although searching for a job can be frustrating, it is important that you take the time that you
need to find the job that is right for you. The effort that you put into your search now will be
well worth it in the long run.
