Jeff’s Review of Resume and Cover Letter Workshop

February 26, 2006 | Comments Off

I found the event worthwhile. They emphasized the importance of tailoring your resume for each specific job, and completely rewriting your cover letter for each as well. As peer tutors, there are a few specific things we can look for in other students’ cover letters and resumes. For a resume, we can help the student use provocative action verb to describe their accomplishments, and to thin down their accomplishment to what truly are their accomplishments, because in most resumes, less is more. For cover letters, it is important to make sure the student is not using a template, (especially not one with the names of employers from other firms). We should also help them create a cover letter that is short, concise, and contains only relevant
information.
