How to Write a Great Resume and Cover Letter
Linda Spencer, assistant director of the Office of Career Services, offers helpful tips and resources to help you write your résumé and cover letter.
You can see the compilation of résumés and cover letters, as well as see the list of action verbs, put together by the Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC). Through CARC, students have access to the reference library and workshops, as well as a wealth of career services.
Any Extension student can attend first-come, first-served 15-minute appointments with Linda. Appointments are available Mondays from 1 to 4 pm, September 10 to May 6. All students have to do is come by the Undergraduate Office at 51 Brattle Street, Room 501, or call (617) 495-9413. If you can’t make it to an in-person appointment, students can e-mail their résumé to email@example.com to receive feedback.
