Recent college graduates or the soon-to-graduate should make use of any career resources available through your college career center. That includes resume writing and review. Colleges and professors often have eco-industry connections, so do a little digging and see if you can get a referral to any likely employers.
Who you know is every bit as important as what you've learned in today's tight job market. Don't forget to create a personal contacts list before leaving school in order to stay in touch with classmates and instructors who may later be employed with companies that might hire you. Graduating is just a beginning, not an ending.
And for pete's sake, be careful what you post in social media! Employers do check up on what kind of online persona you put forth. There is absolutely nothing private on social meida or the www. Keep it clean!
Creating a job-getting resume is not an easy task. Sometimes you need help. Online resources give guidelines and illustrate the latest writing techniques. Plus many employers are limiiting applications to an online process which is an entirely different style of writing. Don't forget that creating a resume for a government job is vastly different than creating a resume for a job in the private sector. Study examples of job-winning resume and go for that dream job.
Sites change over time, so check for fees.
