Job Market Preparation

Résumé, Curriculum Vitae, Cover Letter, and Mock Interview

Today’s professional and academic job markets are highly competitive. In order to be selected for an interview, an applicant must have a flawless résumé or Curriculum Vitae as well as a convincing cover letter. These are the first documents that a prospective employer reads, and they will determine if a candidate moves forward in the job selection process.

“When I arrived in the USA as an immigrant, I unsuccessfully looked for a job in my field for three months. I tried to create a resume using internet templates, but they were not good enough. Then I read about the Writing Skills Improvement Program and contacted Dr. Robert A. Côté to help me create a professional resume and cover letter and do a Mock Interview. Two weeks later, I was offered a laboratory research position at a university.”
