Market Yourself

Stand out in a sea of applicants by effectively marketing your best skills, abilities, and experiences that relate to the career you want. Highlighting your skills and experiences through your resume or CV and ePortfolio and your interest in and fit with a position through your cover letter are critical steps to landing interviews. The interview is your time to shine by exhibiting your fit with the company and the ability to outperform other candidates under consideration. Continually evaluate and update your marketing materials throughout your graduate study to reflect new positions and experiences.
