Professional Documents

First Impressions Matter

From the first time an alum reviews your online profile to your handwritten thank you note after your interview, you can control how others perceive you. Professional materials that effectively reflect you, your abilities, and your accomplishments will open the door for you to meet and interview with employers.


A resume is often the first sense a potential employer has of you.  Present your experiences and skills in a way that captures their attention.


Cover Letter

A cover letter is an opportunity to explain both why you are interested in a specific opportunity and how your skills will translate to the position.  Effective cover letters are tailored, well-written, and concise.


Online Profiles

Developing professional connections does not only happen at in person networking events or career fairs. Many employers utilize social networking platforms to connect with potential candidates. It is important to build a professional online presence.


Thank Yous

Sending a thank you note following an interview or networking conversation can help you stand out. A prompt and tailored thank you can help you leave a positive impression on a potential employer.
