Get Started

Get started by viewing our sample resumes in the toolbox on the right. Examples will give you plenty of ideas for content and formatting; just ensure you make your resume “your own” and not too similar to the examples. Once you have a draft, stop by Career Planning or email us to have your resume looked over.

  • Be sure to get your resume critiqued by at least two different people before sending it out. In addition to using our services, it is always a good idea to have someone in your field look at it for field-specific content.

Cover Letters

Cover letters introduce yourself and explain your interest in an open position, and are sent to employers along with your resume. They give you an opportunity to offer employers insight to your personality through your writing style and communication skills.
