Resumés and Cover Letters


The resumé is a key element to how you market yourself to potential employers in any job search. It should provide important details of your qualifications, background, and what you can offer an employer. It should also do so in a concise and well organized format and should also be kept up-to-date as you progress in your educational and career pursuits to accurately reflect your current skills and experiences.

Cover Letters

The Cover Letter is another important tool that allows you to market yourself to potential employers. It provides an opportunity to demonstrate that your particular skills and qualifications fit the requirements of the position in question. It also allows you to show that you have done your research on the position and the organization as well as providing an example of your ability to write and communicate effectively.
