Not sure how to get started? Once you've started a resume, portfolio, or cover letter, look for the Help icon at the top right of the menu, and select 'Product Tour,' 'FAQ,' or 'Video Help' for more information about using the builder.
A cover letter’s purpose is to connect and motivate the reader with your interest for the position in which you are applying. Your letter should be concise and compliment your resume, not duplicate. This is a good place to explain why you are a good fit, list a few soft skills, name connections or personal referrals to the company, etc. Keep it simple and professional. Cover letters are not as commonly used today as they have been in the past but employers still see the value, so be prepared.
There is a second search option on the website to review careers posted through NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers). Click the down arrow on Jobs, located on the left hand side and you will see “NACElink Extended Job Search”.
Resume Books are active and organized by program of study. To participate, click on the drop down arrow under “Documents” located along the left hand column in Job Connect. Choose “Approved” and add new document. Now that your resume is loaded, click on “Opt-In Books”. Click on the green box “Add Resume” to allow employers to view your resume.
