Résumé and Cover Letters

Résumés and cover letters are vital components to your job search. We want to make sure you have the most up-to-date advice and support when crafting your résumé, and we will provide you with resources and ideas to help you market yourself effectively.

To assist you in this area, we offer quarterly on-campus and virtual Résumé Best Practice workshops, the dates of which can be found on our events page and the university web calendar

We also offer résumé and cover letter consultations, but suggest students attend a Résumé Best Practice Workshop prior to requesting a résumé review.  If you cannot attend one in person, you can access a recording of our latest webinar in our workshop archives. This workshop covers many of the basic questions job seekers ask about résumés and cover letters.  Gaining this valuable information in advance of a personal consultation will allow us to focus the session on enhancing your documents beyond the basics.

Preparing for the Interview
The goal with any application is to get you in the door for a face to face interview! Once you've been offered an interview, preparing in advance is key to building confidence and clarity of your message.

We offer quarterly interview workshops to assist students in their preparation. The sessions cover the different types of interviews, the importance of first impressions and building rapport, the STAR interview technique and active practice (for campus workshops). Students can access the recording from our most recent webinar in our workshop archives.
