Resume and Correspondence Advice


Your resume can help you tell your career story. Choose your most valuable experiences to share with an employer, use action verbs that paint a picture and descriptors that illustrate detail.

Effectively communicating with employers and your professional network is a vital step in career development. Written communication gives an employer additional insight into your professionalism and attention to detail. We can provide guidance when you write to seek information, to ask for a meeting, to inquire about openings, to apply for an advertised position, to thank someone for an interview or meeting and to accept or reject offers of employment.

Several resources can help you develop your resume and professional correspondence:

  • Meet with an Undergraduate Careers staff member by appointment via Katalyst
  • Drop-in assistance Monday-Friday, 10:00am-4:00pm, Center for Career Opportunities, Young Hall, Room 132
