Resumés and More

Resumes, cover letters, references, and thank you notes are crucial parts of your job/internship search. We encourage you to meet with a Career Counselor for assistance with these documents.


A resume is your personal marketing tool that showcases your personal, educational, and professional qualifications to employers. The document should be designed to grab the attention of employers and entice them to learn more about you! Think of your resume as your first assignment from your new boss. You want it to stand out and be representative of the work you are capable of doing.

Cover letters

A cover letter is a one-page document allowing you to demonstrate to an employer why you are a good fit for the position and why you should be considered for hire. Some positions may not require a cover letter, however it is recommended if the position is related to communications, marketing, or any profession that relies upon you being well-spoken and having exceptional writing abilities. Your cover letter should state why you’re interested in a particular job, what you know about the company, what you can bring to the position, and what makes you unique as a candidate.
