Resumes & Cover Letters


Your resume represents an essential component of the job and internship application process. The resume includes information relevant to the opportunity you are pursuing and provides the connection between your education, experiences, and skills to the employer and industry of interest. Get comprehensive information, guidelines and assistance on our Resume Guide page.

LinkedIn – Your Digital Resume

Recruiters regularly skip the traditional resume and search for candidates online. With that in mind, what does your online brand say about you? Students should spend as much time on their online brand as they do on their resumes. Highlight your resume-like skills, experiences and accomplishments online, starting with your LinkedIn profile. Think about it as an online resume with more of a marketing format. Learn how to build your LinkedIn profile and brand at our LinkedIn page.

Cover Letters

A cover letter is often required by employers when submitting a resume for a job or internship. Cover letters represent a one-page document that highlights your writing style, contains no spelling and grammatical errors, and includes your most relevant coursework, experiences, and skills to the opportunity of interest. Get comprehensive information, guidelines and assistance on our Cover Letter Guide page.
