What should I know about writing a résumé or cover letter?

If you remember nothing else, remember that a résumé is very personal! The format can depend on your experiences, the type of job or internship you’re applying for, and your personal preferences for layout. That said, there are a number of important tips (active verbs!) to keep in mind.

A cover letter is simply a form of introduction. You’re introducing yourself to the organization and describing the skills that make you the best candidate for the job.
