Resumes & Cover Letters

Resumes & Digital Resumes

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. Your resume can also (and should be) a part of your online brand. What story does your online brand tell about your professional skills and experience? Get comprehensive information, guidelines and assistance on our Resume 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.
