How do you get to the interview process when applying for an internship or job? Having a great résumé, curriculum vitae (CV), or cover letter will get you past the filtering programs and onto the desk of a recruiter. In this Career Camp session we learned how to create and improve these documents. We were also able to answer some current students’ questions.
Starting with the most common documents, résumé and CV, and after explaining what the difference between them is. We discussed the sections to include on both, formatting, construction, and where resources can be found on Handshake. Then moving onto the less common cover letters. We discussed the reasons employers want them, and how to write it so it matches your purpose… landing that interview!
