Highlight your skills and abilities: 
We want to know your accomplishments and what drives you. Share relevant experiences and specific attributes like self-discipline, collaboration and attention to detail to show us why you'd be a great fit.

Tailor your resume: Read the job description thoroughly and focus on the matching skills and experience you would bring to the new role.

Keep it simple: Brevity is important. Be careful not to overload your resume with too much detail.

Consult with others: Ask a few trusted friends, family members or advisers to review the document. They'll help ensure that it reads well and highlights your strongest attributes.

Do a final review: Make sure your resume is completely free of any spelling and grammatical errors.

Research and rehearse
Stay up to date on the news, both general and firm-specific, so you can speak from a place of knowledge and confidence. Mock interviews with friends or family can help you practice your responses. Have specific examples of your previous experience that reflect the competencies of the opportunity you are applying for.
