Prepare for the Career Fair: Developing a Resume & Cover Letter that gets Interviews!

Do you have a cover letter & resume? Are they up to date? Are you highlighting your work, volunteer, and leadership experiences? Your resume and cover letter represents you when you aren't there. It is your professional "snapshot". Your resume determines if you get an interview, and the interview determines if you get a job. Take the time to do your resume right!
