  • Step 3: Build Rapport: Don’t be a stranger! Here are some great ideas for building rapport before handing over your resume.
  • Step 4: Tailor your Resume: How to polish it up to make the best impression.
  • Step 5: Submit your Resume: How are you going to get your resume into the right hands, and not get lost in the shuffle?
