Resumes and Cover Letters

The Career Services office regularly offers resume and job search workshops. Visit the events page to find out about this semester's workshops.

Resumes, cover letters, and personal statements

If you are having difficulty getting started, Career Services can assist. 

We offer drop-in resume and cover letter critiques Monday through Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. during the academic semesters, no appointment needed. We also review graduate school application statements and essays. Stop by Van Hoesen Hall, Room B-5, or if more convenient, visit the Career Services WebEx Room during these hours and someone will help you online. First-come, first-served. If these hours do not work with your schedule, give us a call at 607-753-4715 and we'll schedule an appointment. During summer and winter breaks, resume/cover letter review appointments are available in Handshake. [Please bring a printed copy of your document(s) for in-person appointments.]

Remember, your resume and cover letter will lead to an interview. Career Services recommends that you check out our Interview Essentials page. Additionally, attend a workshop on Interview Essentials offered each semester, and schedule mock interviews for practice.

To set up an individual appointment, call 607-753-4715, or request an appointment on Handshake
