1. Prepare Your Resume

Your resume is a sheet of paper that represents you as a professional – and it is the first impression that you present to a recruiter, hiring manager or future employer. But resume writing is not a skill that is taught in school, and once you are ready to start looking for a job, you are left to fend for yourself. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, this guide will show you exactly what you need to do to create a professional resume.

Print several copies of your resume to take with you.
