Building Resumes and Cover Letters


A resume and cover letter should go hand in hand; if you submit a resume it should always be accompanied by a cover letter. Resumes and cover letters are flexible documents and should be adapted to highlight your particular skills or experiences depending on what job you're applying to. The order in which you present this information can and should vary as well.
