EPICS Career Corner: Crafting a Great Resume and Cover Letter

crafting-a-resume-cover-letter-web

Finals are beginning to wrap up and the prospect of freedom from classes approaches! Now you might be thinking, what am I going to do with all my free time over break? In between catching up on much needed sleep, family time, and Netflix, winter break is a great time to start thinking about your career plans and prepping application materials for future opportunities whether it is full-time employment or internships. Enter the resume and cover letter!

Resumes: Articulating Relevant Experiences

One of the most common concerns I hear from students is how to make past experience look relevant to future opportunities on your resume. It may seem like your past experiences don’t exactly line up with where you want to go or they might seem completely irrelevant. I can promise you they are not! Luckily there are a lot of strategies to use when you want to highlight seemingly unrelated experience to showcase what a great fit you are for a position.

Check out this great article from The Muse for tips and tricks on transforming your seemingly unrelated experience to relevant experience for your future career endeavors!

Cover Letters: The Power of a Story 

Cover letters are tough and writing them is no piece of cake. Top that off with the fact that you might find a lot of the jobs or internships you are applying for have vague descriptions. It’s no doubt this leaves you wondering how you are ever supposed to align your experience with the qualifications the organization is seeking. Enter the power of a story!

Implement three steps from a recent article from The Muse and you’ll find writing a cover letter becomes a lot easier. You might even craft the perfect story to show you are a great fit for the job you are applying for and secure an interview!  

Written by EPICS Assistant Director Mandi Glowen, who serves as the main point of contact for students in the Master of Science in Leadership for Creative Enterprises program.
