Resume & Cover Letters

Most internships require you to submit a resume and cover letter. Use the samples linked below and visit the career resource library in JES A115 for further guidance.

After you draft your resume, you can have it reviewed by a career counselor at our office or in your college career services office. You may also get it reviewed at the Undergraduate Writing Center. Please note that our office does not provide resume reviews to students seeking full-time jobs. We review resumes for academic purposes, part-time jobs, internships, and graduate school applications.

Send your resume and cover letter to contacts. Follow up with a phone call to re-emphasize your interest and answer any questions an employer may have. This is also a good time to try to set up an appointment for an interview. If the organization is out of the area, you may offer to do a phone interview.

After each interview, send a follow-up letter thanking the recruiter for their time and reiterating your interest in the position.
