With straightforward explanations, helpful graphics, and interviews with job-search experts and real-world employers, the program illustrates how to write a resume based on skills and background, how to compose a cover letter, how to behave and communicate during an interview, and how to follow up with a winning thank-you letter.
Special emphasis is placed on building an upwardly mobile approach, encouraging applicants to display enthusiasm, leadership potential, and a willingness to learn.
