Stuck on Your Resume? Our Video Tutorial Will Get You Going

Tiles with Resume Support options

Your resume – it can be one of the most challenging and dreaded parts of the job search. Yet, you can’t really start your search without it. Employers will expect you to have a polished resume to share with them. You want to be sure yours is crafted in such away that your strengths and all you have to offer the employer are clear and compelling. You also want a powerful cover letter that catches their attention and gets you considered for the job.

To get started, check out our video tutorials on bouncebackcontracosta.org. We’ve teamed up with our partner Rubicon Programs to create these three tutorials, which walk you through the résumé and cover-letter writing process. Before you know it, you will have a solid resume and cover letter that you can feel proud to share with potential employers.
