Applications documents, which include a resume, cover letter, writing sample, and transcripts, are often a candidate’s first opportunity to make an impression with an employer. The following resources will ensure that your application documents effectively communicate your skills and experience. Students should attend Career Center workshops to learn how to draft their resumes and cover letters.
Keep in mind that these resources serve only as a starting point. Sample documents do not take into account your unique experience and interests. Once you have a strong first draft, make sure that you meet with a counselor to have your documents reviewed before you submit your applications.
