Resumes and Cover Letters are a collection of your education, skills, and experiences, but more importantly, they can be the first impression you leave with a company and your chance to show an employer how you fit with a job or opportunity. Your resumes and cover letters should be concise and tailored to every position you apply for and kept current with your latest activities. All Connectees within our program will be expected to have a resume and if you need assistance we are partnered with great organizations that can help you. There are also online and in person resources available to assist you with resume and cover letter help.
