Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!

Tip of the week

When writing your cover letter and resume, avoid perfunctory descriptions of your previous job roles. Instead, focus on listing your accomplishments, especially those where you exceeded expectations. Pro tip: use numbers and percentages to quantify your achievements whenever possible—they’ll stand out in the text.
