Résumés and Cover Letters for Graduate Students and Returning Adults

If you have completed your Bachelor’s degree or you have several years of work experience under your belt, then this resume and cover letter workshop is for you. We’ll review résumé content and design, discuss the best ways to align your qualifications with the position description, and learn how to build an effective argument in your cover letter, persuading decision-makers that you are the best person for the job. Please bring your own resume and cover letter to discuss.

NOTE: If you are applying for academic/faculty positions, please attend our separate Academic CVs and Cover Letters for the Academic Job Market workshops.
