Workforce Wednesday: Tips for the Job Application Process

For jobseekers, finding the right job is just part of the equation. Since the application process can make or break your chances of landing the position, it’s important to be prepared by creating a career portfolio.

This portfolio should contain things like transcripts, certificates, your employment history awards, performance reviews, work samples, and references. You’ll also want to have your master application, resumé, and cover letter included.

Being fully prepared for the application process will make applying for jobs (especially when you do it multiple times) much more efficient and effective. There’s plenty of additional information in our Smart Start Guide, which you can access by clicking here.
