Job hunting is about selling yourself but to make a sale, you have to advertise. From traditional paper resumes to new-media methods of self-promotion, this video explores the best ways for applicants to showcase their talents, accomplishments, and potential value to employers. An in-depth discussion of resume strategy highlights objectives, structure, formatting (both hard copy and electronic), and proofreading, followed by read-aloud examples that help clarify what employers do and don't like to see. Next comes a detailed look at creating work sample presentations, from basic notebook and photo-album layouts to digital and online portfolios. Visual demos show what might work in industries such as marketing, construction, and culinary arts. Finally, viewers are reminded that social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn are powerful promotional tools, if used wisely and professionally.

A Cambridge Educational Production.
