How to Write a Resume

In the job hunt, the single most important tool is a carefully thought-out, attractively designed, well-written RESUME. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you draft a copy and bring it in to the Career and Post-Graduate Development office for feedback.

Job Search Letters

Cover Letters
The cover letter introduces your resume and provides context for the reader.  The letter should reflect your personality, enthusiasm, intellect and interest in the organization where you are applying.

Thank You Letters
After your job interview or meeting an employer at a career fair or other networking event, it is important to send a note to thank the interviewer for his/her time.

Accept / Decline / Withdraw Letters
Although accepting or declining a job often occurs verbally, it is best to follow-up with a professional reply in writing.
