Your Personal Marketing Tools

Your resume and cover letter are a brief "advertisement" of your skills, knowledge and relevant experience.  Their content and appearance are extremely critical as they are your first contact with a potential employer and will determine if you will receive an interview for the job you are seeking.  Ideally, your resume and cover letter should emphasize your strong points while also expressing your uniqueness and individuality.
