Résumés & Cover Letters
Your résumé summarizes your personal and professional preparation for the position to which you are applying. Even if you are applying via an online application system and a résumé document is not required; you will need to supply most, if not all, of the common elements of a well‐designed résumé in the online fields. It is generally expected to have copies of your résumé when you interview, to hand out. Finally, by continually updating your résumé, you will not have to hassle with recalling important details from past experiences, as they will be all in one place – your résumé!
