Résumé Writing and Cover Letters
The first tools you need as you begin your job search are a stellar, well-written resume and cover letter. This is an employer's first impression of YOU!

Even if you do not have work experience, you CAN create a resume based on your skills, your education, club involvement, and volunteer experience. Here is ALL the information that you need to create an award winning cover letter and resume. And YES you need a cover letter!
