Resumes and Cover-Letters
When you apply for employment, you want your first impression to be a positive one! By creating a compelling cover-letter and a relevant resume (and making the two work together), you’ll put your best foot forward. Do you want to increase your chances of success even further? Tailor your cover-letter and resume for each job you’re pursuing. Workplaces are unique and distinct; your cover-letter and resume should acknowledge those distinctions by highlighting your skills and experience that match the employer’s needs. A general “one-size-fits-all” resume may not convince employers that you are an ideal fit.
One’s career-journey may best be explained by example — a ride on Resume Road. Our illustrative example is centered upon a Writing Center creation named Casey Grinds. To trace Casey’s employment- and education-path, take a moment to Meet Casey Grinds.
