Resumes & Cover Letters

Your resume and cover letter are often the only sense a recruiter has of you, your abilities, and your accomplishments. Studies show that resumes receive about 20 seconds of a recruiter’s time. Remember, your resume and cover letter are pieces of paper that represent you. You should not try to include everything you have done during your time at Notre Dame - instead, think of your resume and cover letter as documents that market your most applicable skills and experiences to an employer.  A well-written resume and cover letter can help you reach your goal of getting the interview and eventually landing a job or internship.
