Write a Resume
Your resume should be unique and convince an employer that you should be interviewed
Resumes
Start by taking a look at our complete Resume Writing Guide.

Your resume is your first impression. It must convince the employer in a matter of seconds that you are unique and should be interviewed. Therefore, it is necessary that you put effort into creating your resume.

  • Remember that a resume should highlight your achievements, skills and background; it is not a detailed account of your life history.
  • Be sure to check your grammar and spelling carefully, and do not falsify any information on your resume (it could cost you a job!).
  • All Freshmen and Sophomores wanting a Resume Review or Cover Letter Review must first take the Resume & Cover Letter Workshop.
Cover Letters
It is important that you send a well-written cover letter along with your resume when applying for a position, especially for positions requesting cover letters, or for positions requiring strong writing skills.
  • A cover letter is a one-page statement of objective which should highlight your skills and interest in a particular field/position.
  • It should communicate to the prospective employer how you are a good match for the company and the desired position.
Take the time to craft a good letter, and proofread it very carefully before sending if your cover letter has errors, your whole application may be thrown out! Save copies of all correspondence for your records
