Cover Letters and Resumes Overview
It is critical to have a well-organized resume when applying for positions in order to showcase your skills and abilities to potential employers. However, when you pair your resume with a portfolio of complementary documents, such as a cover letter, references, sample work, and transcripts, you create a more compelling argument as to how your accomplishments make you the ideal candidate for the position. Throughout the "Cover Letters and Resumes" section of our website, you will find a variety of samples as well as guidance on how to craft each document. When creating your portfolio, be sure to use the same header across all your documents to create a strong personal brand.
Below, you will find a sample portfolio to use as a guide for crafting your own as well as a checklist to ensure you've included all necessary documents.
