WRITING A RESUME
Your resume is your greatest marketing tool in any job search. When writing a resume, it should tell, in a clear and concise manner, what experience you have, why that makes you unique, and how that makes you the best person for the job.

WRITING A COVER LETTER
A cover letter invites the hiring manager to read your resume and tells him or her why you are the best person for the job. If a cover letter does its job, it makes the hiring manager want to learn more about you by reading your resume and inviting you for an interview.
