Building a Resume/ Cover Letter
Your resume and cover letter are your first real contact with a potential employer. A résumé shows off your skills, education, and accomplishments, and a cover letter introduces you to employers.
There are three different types of resumes: chronological, functional, and combination.
There are three different types of cover letters: broadcast, referral, and response.
A broadcast letter is a general letter outlining one’s skills and experience and is not targeted towards a specific position.
A referral letter is a general letter outlining one’s skills and experience targeted towards a specific company that another individual referred someone to.
A response letter is a letter describing one’s skills and interest in relation to a specific advertised position.
