Resumes and Cover Letters


Resumes and Cover Letters

Your resume is oftentimes your first impression. An employer will use your resume to consider whether to bring you in for an interview or not. This document is critical and could be your only chance to convince the employer you are qualified for the position you applied for. Employers often spend anywhere from six to 30 seconds scanning your resume, so building one that is a compelling depiction of your skills and experiences can help grab their attention. 

Here at the Career Center you can stop in for a quick resume review or make an appointment in Starfish with our Career Counselor to have an in-depth look at your resume, and resource sheets and websites to help you develop your resume and cover letter.
