Resume and Cover Letter Resources

Resumes are helpful in creating a new online application account, as resume information is pre-populated into the corresponding fields in the online application.  Pre-populated fields can then be edited or deleted, which makes completing the online application less time-consuming and decreases data entry errors.

On many job postings, resumes are required to be uploaded along with a completed online application. 

Important Note: Attaching a resume to the online application is not a substitute for fully completing the online application form! Do not state "See Resume" in the application. If the online application is incomplete, it may not be considered further.

To create a resume and tips on formatting resumes and cover letters, click on a resource link below.  There are many other free resume-building templates on the Internet.
