Resumes and Letters
The resume provides an opportunity to market yourself and highlight your strengths. The average HR official takes 30 seconds or less to skim through a resume so it is important to present a strong and clean document.
Much of your formatting and enclosed information, depends on the field you want to go into. Consider the following examples when creating your resume.
Optimal - Starting from scratch? Let Optimal help you format and get your thoughts in order. Simply login to Jacket Jobs, click on the "Additional Resources" tab, register yourself with Optimal, and begin a new resume
