Creating Job Search Documents

When it is time to submit a job application, representing yourself with well crafted documents is essential.  Your resume, cover letter and any other application documents requested by a potential employer are your individual marketing pieces.  Realize that they may represent everything an employer knows about you initially and all that they can judge to select you from the pack of applications.  Spend time before you apply. The information here is meant to provide basic guidelines.
