Resources

Chronological Resume Template (PDF) Standard format used by most college students. List all of your achievements to help get an interview. You may want to tailor your resume to your program of study.

Functional Resume Template (PDF) Differs from a chronological resume (the kind most people use) in that it highlights skills rather than work history. Typically this is used by individuals who are changing careers or have gaps in their work history.

Cover Letter (PDF) Introduce yourself, express what’s not evident in your resume, and talk about why you’d be a good “fit” at the organization. Tailor it to suit a job description for a specific organization. Slight modifications based on your personal taste and/or field of study are acceptable.

Thank You (PDF) Thank individuals for giving you their time. Often sent after an interview but could also be sent after a chance encounter with a contact or after being provided with a career connection or opportunity. Remind the recipient about you and your qualifications, reiterate your enthusiasm and commitment to the position, and show that you pay attention to details.

Informational Interview (PDF) Gather information from a professional in your desired career and/or industry of interest in an in-person, 15-30 minute meeting. Ask the professional a series of prepared question to gain a better understanding of their work.

Action Words (PDF) Use action words in your resumes and cover letters to describe work experience.

Use the Center for Creative Profession's LinkedIn page as a professional approach for connecting with employers, faculty, staff, and peers.
