Create a Resume / Cover Letter / LinkedIn Profile

Your resume is often one of the first things a prospective employer or graduate school admissions staff member will see. A cover letter is another document a prospective employer will review first. The cover letter allows you to explain why you are interested in a position and describe relevant experiences more deeply.

A quick Google search for the word resume or cover letter could return over a billion results, some helpful and others not so helpful. Instead of going down the rabbit hole, consider exploring the resources here!

If you would like resources on either your resume or cover letter, consider scheduling an appointment with an advisor or PCA in Handshake.
