Resume and cover letter support

A good resume and cover letter can make or break your application. Be sure to customize your resume and cover letter to your own experience and talents—and for the job at hand. You want to make sure your documents present a professional appearance, and that they truly reflect you as a candidate and how you’re best suited for that particular position. And don’t forget to have someone else read both your resume and cover letter before you send in your application!
