Resume / Cover Letter

Writing Your Resume

Your resume is a “living document” which will grow and change as your experiences and career goals grow and change. Use the resources below as a guide to create or update your resume.

Writing Your Cover Letter

Your cover letter demonstrates your writing ability and goes into further detail how you meet the requirements of the job description. It is a best practice to use a new cover letter with each job application that clearly indicates your interest in a specific position at a specific organization. Use the resources below as a guideline to create or update your resume.
