In my experience, it would be very important to carry your updated resume, or curiculum vitae. It should contain the job that you are applying for, the job objective, educational attainment, work experience or professional experience. On top of that is a personalized cover letter explaining your intent to apply for the said job, the reasons for applying and include why you think you are qualified for the job. You may also place a photo in your resume, but be do further research about putting photos when applying for jobs abroad like the US. They don't your photo on your resume. For the supporting documents, this would vary in accordance to your profession. For nurses for example, they are supposed to include photocopies of their license, IV therapy card and the like. But generally, some would ask you to bring your transcript of records, diploma, birth certificate, certificates of training, police clearances but this would vary from company to company. It is also very important to do research about the company that you will be applying for as well.

Thanks for the comment. Duly appreciated. I would like to know what job will you be applying for? You can check out the websites to get templates of the resume that you can use, but make your own. Use power verbs to highlight your experience like advocated, created and the like. You can also check out websites to get further advice. Good luck in job hunting.

The resume is definitely your most important document when applying for a job. There are hundreds of ways to design your resume, so consult someone or use some online tips to assist you. Include any relevant work experience, or any work experience in general. Also, be concise but use active verbs when you are writing your descriptions. Also, don't be too picky about jobs, because sometimes you have to start at the bottom to get to the top. If you really want to push to get your ideal job, be sure that you cover letter explains relevant experience and why you would be good for the company. You really need to sell yourself to them and display that you have the necessary skills for the position. Finally, if you get an interview, put together a portfolio of your best work. You may want to make copies of your work just in case the interviewer asks you if they can keep one of my documents. Be sure to go over all your work for any mistakes before you place it in your portfolio!

Nowadays job want to hear that you've graduated in university, you have 10 years of experience, and preferably you're a man as you can't get pregnant. This things are unrealistic, so fortunately not only that kind of people can get jobs. When you go to a job interview keep in mind that you're the person they're looking for, and act like that. It works for me.

Well, the university where you graduate is also a factor on applying a job. But base on my assessment, SKILLS is more important rather than where you graduate from. Hope you get what i mean.
