Prepare a Professional Resume

A resume serves as a marketing tool that highlights the skills and experiences most relevant to the opportunity you are applying for. Your resume and cover letter lay the groundwork to help you get an interview, where you will impress the hiring manager or search committee and land the position.

Resumes are dynamic documents. Your experiences and skills are always changing, so your resume should always be changing too. Explore tools in the career and industry pathways to build a professional resume that fits you and is flexible enough to develop as you do.
