Resumes and Cover Letters

Your resume and cover letter are the first parts of your personal marketing package - the tools you use to market yourself to potential employers.

Even if you aren’t ready to search for a job or internship, creating a resume and keeping it current will show you the steps you’ve already taken toward accomplishing your goals, and any gaps you need to fill.

A cover letter should almost always accompany your resume. Your cover letter should introduce you and your resume, but don’t repeat the same thing on both documents.

Below are resources to help you get started on resumes and cover letters. We recommend you make an appointment with CALS Career Services to have your resume and cover letter reviewed – we can provide feedback to make your resume stand out.
