You have just graduated and are looking for your first job as a librarian. You are a mid-career professional making a change to libraries. You want to apply for a promotion and increase your job responsibilities.
Unless you are already an employee and applying to an internal job posting, your résumé is your first introduction to a potential employer, and you do not want your job application going into the “no” pile immediately. This means you need an application that catches the attention of the recruiter…or, these days, passes through the online application system to make it into the hands of the hiring manager.
How do you build a résumé or CV that will get you an interview? Are cover letters really necessary? Why complete the online job application when a résumé says everything? Who are the best references? Present yourself in the best light but still remain honest about your skills and experience.
In this webinar, Melissa Lockaby shares recommendations and guidance on how to get an interview by providing the best application that highlights your accomplishments while addressing what employers want.
