Why a Cover Letter is So Important
Job seekers often ask whether it is important to write a cover letter. Despite this, many of them will not approach the job of writing one very seriously, often treating it as little more than an afterthought. The resume is what consumes their thoughts, and they spend the bulk of their time and effort on this. Meanwhile, the cover letter itself is cast to one side, considered to be merely a necessary addition but one which is not really all that important.
Often a job seeker sends his or her resume to dozens of recruiters and hiring agents without much success. To remedy this we can implement small changes in the way you write your resume to greatly improve the chances of being called in for interviews

How to get an internship
As a recruiter I love seeing internships on a resume. It shows me that this person didn’t just party for four years or simply chose a major because they wanted to have the same classes as their friends. Instead this person invested their free time or their summers and possibly even worked for free in order to build up relevant experience that would complement their chosen degree. This is the type of person that I will hire without much thought; he/she has proven to me that they will invest as much time into my business as they did in themselves.
Enjoying your job search may seem a bit counter-intuitive because it is usually accompanied by stress, frustration, and despair. I want you to take a deep breath and take a few steps back. I know that we all have bills and worries and people in our life that we need to support. I want you to let it all go and clear your mind. This may be easier said than done because what we do is immediately try to jump back into the rat race. This ultimately leads us to less desired position with less desired pay and we start the same “I hate my Job” cycle again which has brought us to this place, to begin with.
