Job hunting can be tough in today’s climate. If you are a first time job hunter, it is important to use as many resources as possible! Sites like LinkedIn or Indeed can help land a job. Writing a resume and cover letter is also important, but it is key to make sure that it is tailored to each job you apply for.
