Resumes, Vitae, Cover Letters and Portfolios

Resumes - Your resume is a written commercial that summarizes and promotes your greatest qualifications and accomplishments drawing on your most relevant personal, educational, and work experiences. Employers usually spend seven to fifteen seconds pre-screening resumes to find the right candidate! Make yours stand out!

Cover Letters - Cover letters connect your past experiences listed on your resume to your potential future positions and highlight your strengths, accomplishments, and can be tailored to the needs of the company to which you are applying for.

Curriculum Vitae - A curriculum vitae (singular), meaning "course of one's life", is a document that gives much more detail than does a resume about your academic and professional accomplishments. Curricula vitae (plural) are most often used for academic or research positions, whereas resumes are the preferred documents in business and industry.
