Resumes, Cover Letters ...

Whether you are searching for a summer job, a volunteer opportunity or your first job after graduation, you will need four basic tools: a résumé, a cover letter, sharp interviewing skills and an ability to network.

A résumé is a written document that strategically highlights your education, experiences, and skills so that an employer or internship sponsor can quickly see what you have to offer.

A cover letter tells a prospective internship sponsor or employer why you are applying and where you see the fit between what you have to offer and what they seek.

An interview is a two way interaction allowing both you and the employer to determine if you are the right candidate for the position.

Networking helps you to learn more about a chosen field and to develop relationships with people in those fields.
