Writing Résumés and Cover Letters

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



Overview

Are you having trouble distilling your whole life into a one-page résumé? Are you unsure about 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 résumés and cover letters and how to meet those criteria impressively.

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

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

Students working on résumés 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 résumé and/or cover letter. Please note that this workshop is not appropriate for people writing an academic curriculum vitae.
