Résumé and Cover Letter writing requires significant thought and editing. Utilizing ECS to help you draft your first, and subsequent, résumés is well worth your effort.
Get started by creating an outline of activities and experiences you’ve had. Are you in RSOs? Have you held leadership positions? Interned before? Held any jobs either on- or off-campus? Tutored? Think of any experience you’ve had that builds on professional skill sets and list them in an organized fashion.
The résumé is where you place all the points that make you worth hiring. Don’t go overboard, but definitely sell yourself!
