Assistance is available from the Center for Career Development staff to help students write a resume and other business correspondence. It is recommended that students first attend a resume writing workshop or stop by and pick up a handout of general guidelines before putting together their first draft.

Many books on the subject of resume/cover letter writing may be checked out from the Richard Career Resource Center, and examples of resumes are also available for students to have for reference.
