When it comes time to apply for a job or internship, many of us feel stuck figuring out how to explain our background and experiences in a way that will be compelling to employers. It is common for job seekers to under-sell the great skills they have developed to date.
A research project conducted at DU showed that recruiters scored applicant resumes higher when job seekers had incorporated feedback from a career advisor before applying. Below are a few resources to get you started on your resume and cover letter, but it is critically important to get feedback on your materials as well!
