Sample Cover letters & Resumes
Whether your resume is developed chronologically, functionally, or a hybrid of both, your resume should be a concise representation of skills that you have developed through your education, work, extracurricular and volunteer experiences.

Your resume must be bold and lively, celebrating the successes that you have accomplished and the skills that you have gained from these activities. This exercise is designed to assist you in developing your marketing voice as it pertains to conveying your skills through your accomplishments.
The C.A.R. (Challenges – Actions – Results) exercise will engage you in developing statements that reflect your skills and abilities to validate your experiences.
