Resumes & CVs

Resumes and CVs are professional documents that introduce an employer to your skills, experiences, and professional/academic history.

Cover Letters

Cover letters, on the other hand, are professional letters that provide an introduction to employers regarding your interest in a position (or in being considered for potential positions) and your perceived fit with a job and organization.

Application Statements

Application statements demonstrate your unique qualifications and illustrates your writing ability, creativity, and career goals. Admissions and Hiring committee members look for interesting, insightful, and specifically individualized statements that provide concrete evidence of your competence and motivation.

Document Critique Resources

You can have any career-related materials (resume, application statements, cover letter, letter of interest) reviewed virtually by Career Center advisors and Liaisons who will provide you with feedback.
