Resumes and Cover Letters

Your resume serves as your personal introduction to potential employers and it is a reflection of your professionalism, abilities, and communication skills. It must service as an effective "marketing tool" to highlight what you can offer an organization. 

If you are applying to positions in academia, such as research fellowships, or to graduate schools, a CV-curriculum vita, an “academic” resume, may be what you need.
A cover letter should be included with your resume. It should be tailored to the position and organization of interest and highlight your related skills and experiences.
