Resumes and Cover Letters

Well-written resumes and cover letters are central to a successful job search.  The cover letter is a formal letter that accompanies the resume you send to prospective employers (unless directed otherwise by the employer). It serves as an introduction, telling the employer who you are and why you are submitting a resume.  Your resume then communicates your qualifications by summarizing your experiences, education and skills.  Your resume can be used to apply for advertised jobs, send to employers you discover through research and networking, submit for on-campus recruiting opportunities, or distribute to employers at job fairs.  Since employers spend an average of 6-10 seconds reviewing a resume, first impressions count!
