Resume Tip #20: Send your resume as early as possible
The recruiting process is cyclical. However, open positions always dictate when in-person interviews occur. On the other hand, internships happen in the summer and the recruiting process usually starts in October (yes, that’s right: October).
Resume Tip #20: Send your resume as early as possible.
What you need to do:
- Send your resume now.
- Don’t wait. The longer you wait, the less motivation you’ll have to prepare yourself for the interviews.
It’s never too late to send your resume to a company or university, but the sooner you send the resume the better. Being first in line assures yourself that a recruiter will not look over your resume in a hurry. Take the time to make those 30 seconds worthwhile for the other person that will decide your future.
