Jefferson County Connections is now offering free resume workshops.
The average employer spends only 10 seconds looking at a resume. Yet it is the only contact you have with the potential employer. Most employers are actually looking for a reason NOT to interview you. There is no room for anything but a flawless, compelling document that reflects who you are and what you've accomplished in the most beneficial light. In this increasingly competitive job market, you must have a professionally crafted resume in order to stand out among the hundreds of job seekers applying for the same position as you-it's no longer an option. Is your homemade resume ready to make the cut? You work hard everyday. You've spent years acquiring the skills needed to outperform the competition-and make no mistake about it-this is a competition. Don't let a single mistake misrepresent years of hard work. Remember, only 10 seconds can decide your future. Regardless of your professional and educational background, your career will be summed up in the blink of an eye on a single piece of paper. Communicating your qualifications effectively is harder than you think. The purpose of your resume is to make a good first impression, and if you cannot achieve this goal, then your chances of an interview are virtually impossible.

- Cover Letter
