Resumes & Cover Letters


Nearly everybody you ask has an opinion about resumes. Some of this advice is great, others not so much. Your challenge is to find a way to quickly convey your value - knowledge, skills, accomplishments to the reader/employer in a targeted way that speaks directly to the needs of the open position. 

You may only have 5-10 seconds to impress the reader - 1st impressions count. 

*If you want a critique of your current resume, upload it to your Gaucho Jobs student account. All initial resumes uploaded into the system will receive a quick critique.
