Tips for Landing a Job Interview in New Orleans Hospitality & Tourism

 

1.

Create the Perfect Resume

No matter how much experience you have, always come to a job fair, or submit an application online, with an updated resume available! A resume is a document that provides potential employers with knowledge on your previous work experience, education and accomplishments. 

A great resume:

Grabs the attention of employers and recruiters

Sells your strongest skills and accomplishments

Shows how you’re a match for a position or project

And most importantly, gets you a job interview

 

2.

Create an Attention-Grabbing Cover Letter

A resume should always be accompanied by a unique cover letter. Usually this short document is included when sending your resume in order to introduce yourself to the prospective employer. It’s your chance to talk a little about yourself, and sell why you are the perfect candidate for the open position.

 

3.

Do Your Research

Know the history of the company where you’re interviewing, especially if it’s a local staple. The more information you know about the company, the better your chances of impressing the interviewer. The New Orleans Public Library system is a great resource if you need access to a computer or free wifi. They also hosts monthly events like 1-on-1 Computer Tutoring and Job Seekers’ Help.
