Resume Writing

A resume is a brief highlight of your experiences, educational background, and skills as they relate to the type of job you are seeking. It is designed to get you to the next step in your job search -- interviewing.

Whenever you mail or e-mail your resume, you will usually include a cover letter.  Career Center staff will critique drafts of your resumes and cover letters during our drop-in hours

The Career Center has many resources to help you develop quality resumes and cover letters.  You may especially want to use OptimalResume, a web-based program that will help you easily create a high impact resume.
