What is networking and why is it important?
Networking is simply the process of creating connections among people.
A career network consists of those individuals who can offer you advice and information on the occupations and fields in which you are interested.
Building this network is an essential part of your career exploration and job search—certainly as important as developing a good resume and much more effective than looking on the internet.
Don't Forget Mobile Job Apps
Some businesses hire an employment agency (staffing service) to conduct the hiring process for them.
Most agencies specialize. When you look for an agency find one that specializes in your line of work.
In addition some agencies only recruit people who are looking for “permanent” jobs. Other agencies only recruit “temporary” help.
Three-quarters of all temporary staffing is now “temp-to-hire” so many people take temporary jobs to get their foot in the door at a good company. You can learn new skills, gain experience, make contacts, and build references.
Most staffing agencies charge a commission as part of the agreement to assist, often deducted from your pay for a specific amount of time, if they find you employment.

should contain your most positive points
Formal education will definitely be one of your strengths
Be sure to include any relevant work experience.
If your experience is limited, talk about special skills you possess.
Keep your 'Thirty-Second Summary' brief and to the point: this is not the time to review the details of your resume.
Here is a CTC example:
Job Seeker: I graduate this spring with a Diploma in Practical Nursing from Chattahoochee Technical College. I have four years experience working in hospitals, performing a wide variety of duties from orderly to admissions clerk. I also completed an internship at Cobb Hospital, working mainly on a special project to streamline admissions procedures. I've had supervisory experience and have excellent computer skills.
