Career resources: planning, resumes, interviews and more!

 Many of you request further assistance in the areas of resume-writing and interviewing. Over the  next newsletters I will discuss “Career Objective” statements. These statements should compel the  employer to look further. A career objective should be powerful, highlight your particular  competencies and demonstrate what you can bring to the position/organization.

 I will also focus on how to prepare for the interview and particularly on Behavioral questions you  may encounter during the Interview process. It is critical that you prepare well for potential questions such as: Describe a time when you were faced with a stressful situation that demonstrated your coping skills?
