Create Your Resume and Cover Letter

Don't be scared! Resumes can be difficult to create.  What you will find is that there is no "right" or "only" way for a resume to look.  What matters the most is the content.   A standout resume can put you ahead of your competition, especially if it is preceded by a stellar cover letter. See an example of each below.  If you feel you need additional help, schedule an appointment with us.
