Resumes & cover letters
Your resume and cover letter describe who you are, what you know, what you have done and, most importantly, what you can offer an employer. A well-crafted and well-formatted resume and cover letter will help you stand out from other applicants and are definitely worth the time and effort. A curriculum vitae (CV) is an alternative to a resume typically used in the academic and research fields. The US Federal Government has an alternate preferred format for resumes as well.
