Once you’ve found a job to apply to, it’s critical you’re prepared for the process. The entire process. The process includes having an updated resume, a cover letter that helps you cut through the clutter that other applicants will create, and most importantly, to be prepared for an interview.

If you don’t have a resume that’s well-prepared, it’s going to get tossed aside quickly.

If you make it past the initial resume review and the recruiter actually reads your cover letter, it needs to tell why you’d be an asset. You need to make sure it impresses and lands a phone interview or in-person interview.

Finally, if you get the interview you need to make sure you’re prepared so you capitalize on the opportunity to move forward.

Because the process can be overwhelming, we’ve highlighted the following job hunt guides from a leading publisher on the subject. The Knock ‘em Dead series of books will make sure you’re prepared for the entire job search process. With these books, your resume and cover letter will set you apart from the rest of the people who applied, and you’ll go into the interview with confidence. 

These books will work in tandem so you don’t derail your goal of landing a career in railroading.
