Resume, LinkedIn, and Cover Letter

Saint Mary's College


Your resume is your ultimate tool in landing your next job or internship. With your resume, you should

  • Intend to secure an interview
  • Grab attention; employers typically scan a resume for no more than 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Take advantage of that time by crafting a resume that is clear, concise, and quickly demonstrates how you meet their needs.
  • Have and utilize a comprehensive master resume that contains details of all professional experience and useful skills in one place. Once you have a master resume, you'll be able to create target or specified resumes depending on specific job or type of work.

Remember that experience can come from a variety of different places and that all transferable skills should be recognized to highlight why you are best qualified.
