Your resume represents YOU and must capture the essence of who you are
and what you bring to the employer. When selecting which information to
highlight in your resume, remember that employers are interested in a
broad range of skills, abilities, and interests. They may be found in your
coursework, projects, work experiences, community experiences, leadership
positions, or international experiences.
A cover letter always accompanies a resume, whether sent through the
U.S. mail or email. Create a "shell" letter first, then customize it for
each reader. The cover letter gives you the opportunity to display your
enthusiasm for the position, your knowledge of the organization, and how
your background and interests match their needs. Address your letter to a
person whenever possible, preferably a manager in your field.
