Have you recently completed your online business administration degree, or maybe your online management degree? Maybe you're close to finally getting the degree in hand, but you haven't quite made it there yet. Your work isn't over yet! If you haven't already, you'll need to construct a well thought out, carefully created resume to match your new online business administration skills.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when seeking jobs is not updating their resumes. Doing a mass email or printing off and distributing outdated resumes will never land you the business job you deserve now that you have your online business administration degree. The first thing you should do is re-evaluate the resume you already have, assuming you've got one. When was the last time it was updated? It's always a good idea to tailor your resume to meet the expectations of the potential employer. Do a search for jobs that you find particularly interesting and carefully read through the list of qualifications the successful candidate is required to have. You shouldn't have to give too much thought to the new-found skills you have with your online business management degree. Start with a skills inventory on your resume, listing all of the qualifying skills you possess. While you want your skills to align with the company's expectations, you don't want to simply cut and paste the ad onto your resume. Be honest, but don't be afraid to show them what you've got.
