Resume and Cover Letter Resources
A resume is a document that represents you and all of your accomplishments and skills. You will want to keep revising and adding to throughout your life as you accomplish new things, not just when you are seeking a job or internship.
A cover letter is meant to introduce a resume and provide any supplemental information about you, as well as show your enthusiasm for a job. While not all job applications require a cover letter, you should always include one if it is requested.
Below are resources to help you write both of these important documents.
