The Office of Career Counseling and Placement is here to help you prepare for and conduct your search for the perfect internship, graduate school or post graduation job. Resource information on resumes, cover letters, interview skills, planning your search and suggestions of what to do and not do are provided for the use of both students and alumni.
Your initial contact with a potential employer is often through your resume and cover letter. Think of your resume as a sales brochure, as it will speak for you when you are not there to speak for yourself. For this reason, your cover letter and resume must tell the potential employer why you are the one they must interview!
