Resumes and Cover Letters

Resume 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 and to the point. It could mean the difference between landing that interview or not being considered—it's that important!

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.

To make an appointment for your resume and cover letter critique simply download and complete the Review Request Appointment Form.

E-mail or drop-off your completed form in Richardson Hall, Room 267A.
