Resumes and Cover Letters
How does your resume look? Is it "employer-ready"? Were you able to keep it on one page? Did you include the necessary information and leave off the unnecessary?
Let us take a look and make sure it is ready to send. You can e-mail it to CareerSrv@westminster-mo.edu
or any one of the staff.
Don't know where to start? Here is an Interactive Resume
that includes two styles of resumes, followed by some do's and don'ts.
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.
After a rough draft of a resume/cover letter has been developed, it is recommended that students have the document critiqued. This is a crucial step that cannot be emphasized enough. Remember that the resume should be a document that reflects an individual's strengths and experiences as they relate to a chosen field. Come see us ~ we are here to help you succeed!
