Resumes & Interviews

Resume Packet

The MCC resume packet is a PDF with helpful hints and tips.

A resume is a marketing tool. It should portray your unique qualifications, help you stand out from other candidates, and make an employer want to meet you in person. It is your advertisement to help you obtain an interview.

Keep in mind that prospective employers will spend less than 30 seconds reviewing your resume. You must keep it clear, concise, and focused on the information that will sell you best.
