    Job hunting requires knowing how to manage several different moving parts. First of all, do you know how to write a professional resume? Secondly, what does it take to write a cover letter? When should you send thank you notes, and what should the content be?

    There are many ways modern job seekers can use the Internet to help them find new jobs too. Use LinkedIn, Twitter, and other job search engines to really boost your job search!

The Master's College baseball team has made a habit of sweeping doubleheaders this year. Nine of those have led to the greatest regular season in program history. However, on a day when the Mustangs clinched their third GSAC regular-season championship (2003, 2013) and set a record for conference victories (33-9, 41-10 overall), they didn't have to bring out the broom.
