Effective Resumes and Cover Letters

Whether you are looking for a summer job, employment related to your program, or you are a soon-to-be graduate, it is important to customize your resume to demonstrate your qualifications and show how you fit the job target. Effective resumes will attract employers' attention and secure an interview! A cover letter is your introduction to an employer or company which conveys much about who you are, including your ability to communicate and market yourself in writing. A well-written cover letter can convince the employer to read your resume. Learn how to create the marketing tools you need to secure the job you want!
