Tonight, Carley Mendez from Schneider Downs talked to us about resumes and cover letters. She emphasized keeping resumes to one page and also recommended cutting out the “relevant coursework” section if length was an issue, because most students take similar classes. She then highlighted the need for proofreading and organization in both resumes and cover letters. Resumes should not have weird fonts, colors, or formatting. She also went over the basic sections of a cover letter. The first paragraph is an introduction, the next paragraph highlights skills, and the third paragraph has contact information.
