Resumes and Cover Letters

Student working on Excel in the Library

Resumes and cover letters are essential in any successful internship or job search process. It is crucial to have a resume that accurately represents your skills and highlights your experiences. Your cover letter should be professional, personalized, relevant to that company/position and be to the point.

While the center offers resume and cover letter critiques, we strongly encourage all students to check our Workshops list and attend a Resume and Cover Letter workshop prior to your first critique.
