Resumes & Cover Letters

Developing resume materials or participating in an interview helps you to shape your experiences and skills for communication with different audiences. Your cover letter and resume don’t just summarize your previous experience; they highlight your relevant professional and communication skills as well as convey your genuine interest in the organization. The interview will give you the opportunity to display your professionalism and provide further evidence of your skills that match the position.
