How We Help: Job Search Training
We understand that the process of finding a job can be challenging, and that is why our staff works closely with our students to get their job searches underway.
Crafting Resumes and Cover Letters
A good resume is an important first step in the job application process. In many cases, your resume and cover letter are the first chance you have to impress an employer. A strong resume can sometimes lead to being asked for an interview.
The Salter School Career Services staff works with our students to develop resumes and cover letters that help you make a good impression on potential employers. Your resume is your chance to tell a potential employer about your education, experience, and job skills. We are here to help you create a resume that brings out your strengths and shows employers what you can bring to the job.
Practicing Interview Skills
In addition to an effective resume, it is important to have strong interview skills. To get hired you will need to convince a potential employer that you are the best candidate for the job. Our Career Services specialists will help you get better at interviewing by reviewing interview techniques and conducting mock interviews. This practice will help you build your confidence and get comfortable with the interview process.
Building Your Network
Building a network of other people in your new career field can help your career growth. The more people you know within your field, the greater your network of job connections grows to be, and the easier it becomes to find out where the opportunities are when you need them. Before you graduate, the Salter School Career Services department will help you learn ways to start building that network.
Navigating Job Search Tools
When using the Internet, the number of job-searching websites can sometimes feel overwhelming. The job searching support you will receive at the Salter School will help you get a better understanding of which resources are most useful. Our Career Services department has a variety of different tools that can be used to find opportunities you might otherwise not know about. We’ll help you learn how to use these tools in the way that works best for you.
