Cover Letter

A good cover letter is a critical tool for use in pursuing career goals. To create an effective cover letter, the Career Resource Center offers workshops and an online cover letter writing guide, along with books and guides in our office library.

Cover Letter Critique Service - Drop-off your cover letter and/or résumé in 308 Alfiero for critique. Students are then able to pick up written feedback or schedule an individual appointment with one of our Career Advisors to discuss the suggestions.
