Resumes, cover letters and writing samples are the first, and sometimes only, opportunity to make a positive impression on an employer. They must be perfect. Your entire work history and educational career are summarized in a few pages and every detail is a reflection on you. Mastering these documents is crucial to obtaining an interview.

The related pages contain detailed information concerning each type of document. All students and graduates are welcome to meet with a member of the Career Services Office to have their resumes, cover letters and other documents reviewed before sending them to an employer.
