Resume Builder
This tool will help you write an effective resume that will get noticed by employers. The more you know about yourself and the position you are are applying for, the easier it will be to create a winning resume. If you are not sure what job or field of employment interests you, you might not be ready to write your resume. Instead, consider taking the inventories under Know Yourself, to help you learn more about who you are, the skills you have to offer, what work values matter to you, and much more! Then you can explore different industries and occupations found in Saskatchewan (and beyond) to narrow down your possibilities.
