Professional Tip Block
In a job search, it is important that you deliver a unique, consistent and compelling message to effectively market and sell yourself to the employer.

This message is your value proposition. To attain the best chances in succeeding, your value proposition must be delivered holistically throughout the job search process (i.e. résumé, cover letter and interview).
