Résumé and cover letter

What you have done has prepared you to shine in the position to which you apply. Writing a professionally crafted, rock solid resume can seem like a daunting task, but the best way to approach it is to take your time and do your research. The Career Center offers services and resources that can help you create a résumé that perfectly reflects your education, skills and training.

Résumé Drop-in

Résumé Drop-in sessions are a great place to get started. Held Wednesdays (when classes are in session) from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. via Zoom. Much like an open house, there is no appointment or RSVP needed to attend, just stop in. Career Center staff and one of our Center for Academic Excellence writing tutors will be standing by, ready to offer suggestions and ideas on taking your resume to the next level. Join us at the Zoom link online!

Additional Resume Support

The Career Center are not your only resume experts on campus. The Writing Center and the Library have professional writing tutors ready and able to help you.

Drop-in at the Research and Writing Help on Zoom or the Research and Writing Help at the Desk. Bring your resume or any other written document and get 1-1 help for any aspect of the process of writing. Research and Writing Help is available to students, alumni and community members.

For Current Students Only: Access appointment-based help for all your career writing needs through the Writing Center.

Job search resource guides

The following guides were created for students and graduates of Metro State in partnership with the Career Center, Testing and Tutoring Services, and local employer partners. Guides were developed to reflect the wide variety of job seekers we have as a campus community. Each guide offers a unique perspective and is available for download and editing.

“There were a few challenges (in my job search): it was during the pandemic, I had just shy of one year of experience in the field, and I was one semester shy from my Bachelor’s degree. After I finished my degree I reapplied with help from the Career Center. I refined my resume and highlighted my achievements both academically and career wise.”
