Writing Resumes and Cover Letters

Come to this workshop to learn what employers say they want in resumes and cover letters and how to meet those criteria impressively.


Overview

Are you having trouble distilling your whole life into a one-page resume? Are you confused about how to write a resume that is going to be fed into a computer rather than being read by a human being? Don’t know how to target that cover letter for a particular position? Well, we’re here to help. We’ll concentrate here on what employers say they want on resumes and cover letters and on how to meet those criteria.

This workshop is not appropriate for people who are writing an academic curriculum vitae.

Students who have already written a cover letter or resume and want individual advice for improving it should schedule appointments to meet individually with a Writing Center instructor.

Students working on resumes and cover letters should also seek advice from College of Letters and Sciences (1305 Linden Drive, Suite 205, 262-3921), as well as from the many placement offices in individual schools, colleges, and departments across the University.


Intended Audience

Any student who needs to write a resume and/or cover letter. Please note that this workshop is not appropriate for people writing an academic curriculum vitae.
