Tell Your Story (profiles, resumes, cover letters, interviews)

Articulating one’s skills and experience in a clear, concise, and compelling way is a critical part of any application process.  Most of us, however, are not naturally skilled at doing so.  The resources on the following pages provide concrete advice for marketing yourself to potential employers.  If you’d like someone to assist you, connect with our coaches via online resume review, drop-in coaching, scheduled appointments, or mock interviews.
