Resume, CV, and Cover Letters
We have templates and quick guides to help you create a resume that is simple and easy for potential employers to understand. We often allocate too much to these tools, and neglect our relationship building which is the most important part of a job search. I offer this analogy to you:
Getting a Job = Getting a Good Grade
Resume, Cover Letter, Essays = Registering for Classes
Connecting & Networking = Going to Class
Interviews = Tests & Papers
Job Offer = A Good Grade
I highly encourage you to start with our Resume templates and Cover Letter template. Meeting with the writing center to refine your grammar is a great idea, as well as finding a friend to be your job search buddy. For career search help please attend a workshop, meet with Career Services, and subscribe to our weekly e-mail updates for tips and strategies.
Resume or CV? - A CV is a longer version of a resume. It will be written with a faculty member as your reader. Details that are not as applicable to an employer may appear in your CV like academic presentations, the specific research you did with a faculty member, or lists of class sessions you moderated or taught.
