EC JobLinks: Resume and Cover Letter / e-portfolio

As we discussed yesterday, job searches can be challenging if you do not have guidance or the resources that you need to succeed. EC JobLinks is the right tool for you whether you are just exploring opportunities or actively searching for jobs or a career change.

career_tues_1In a competitive job market, you rarely get a second chance to make a first impression. Your cover letter and resume are essential documents that give employers a perspective of who you are and how you may fit into their organization. Does your resume have what it takes to impress a recruiter within ten seconds or less? Are you making the most of the opportunity to demonstrate your skill set and prove that you are the best candidate?

Leveraging your documents within your job search plays a key role in the type of employers you may be attracting. Choose from a number of customizable templates to create multiple documents within your account. Develop and save each version, as you have the ability to change the look and feel with the click of a button. Take advantage of the enhanced resume and cover letter building tool within EC JobLinks to create documents that employers will notice!
