Online Resume & Cover Letter Reviews

Body

The Online Resume and Cover Letter Review Service is available when classes are in session during Fall and Spring Semesters. In Spring 2024, the last day to submit is May 1st. The service is suspended during breaks and over the summer.

What is an Online Resume/Cover Letter Review?

NOTE: Online reviews are unavailable during the Summer. Please utilize our drop-in service or make a coaching appointment for a resume/cover letter/LinkedIn profile review.

 

You will submit a draft of your resume or cover letter online (currently we use Moodle to collect the files). A Career Center staff member spends 10-15 minutes reading your resume or cover letter and provides written feedback on changes and improvements that could make your document stronger and help you stand out when you apply to internships, jobs, or graduate schools. You will receive this feedback in approximately 3-5 business days.

Please read submission instructions prior to sending your file to avoid unnecessary delays.

What if I can't wait 3-5 business days?

If you need feedback right away, you might want to consider our Resume/Cover Letter Drop-in Service instead. See that page for more details. Here's more information about what we consider a "business day:"

A business day is Monday - Friday, 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Any document submitted after 5:00 P.M. will be considered the next business day.

The service will only be available when class is in session. If class is not in session, it is not considered a business day for this service.
