"You want the hiring manager to want to learn more about you because they're intrigued with your application, not confused. So, how do you do that? Here are four tweaks that will get you on the right track.
    1. Connect the dots
    2. Give context to your resume
    3. Answer the obvious questions
    4. Present a visually cohesive package
Writing a cover letter for your resume requires a bit of extra care, but the result is a stronger, more impactful application and ultimately worth it."

"Keep an open mind. Every field is relevant to sustainability so maybe try something you do not know much about, but can grow in. Also, start a LinkedIn profile. Networking is a crucial aspect of business and going out of your way to thank people and make positive connections will take you farther than you would expect. Lastly, have fun! The working world is hard, so enjoy a time where you can make mistakes, learn from your coworkers, and become more prepared for your future."

"My ability to write, critically analyze, and think creatively have been very important to my success. From drafting a response memo which attempts to cleave an opposing party's reasoning, to structuring sentencing designed to ensure that a Defendant gets what's fair and productive rather than just punitive, to redrafting a county ordinance, I am constantly reading critically, writing strategically, and implementing creative solutions to problems."
