Résumés

Learning how to write a résumé is the process of learning a new form of art. Résumés are subjective documents that come with guidelines, not hard and fast rules, and preferences depending on your chosen field of study and the recruiter who will be reviewing the document.

Cover Letters

The most basic goal of a cover letter is to demonstrate your written communication ability to an employer and provide an introduction to yourself. In your cover letter, rather than repeat what you wrote in your résumé, focus on providing narrative example of one to two qualifications you really want to draw an employer's attention towards.
