Resume and Cover Letter Writing Skills

Start course
Administrative clerical

Course introduction

Whether you’re applying for a job, internship, or college, the way you present yourself on paper can mean the difference between landing in the “maybe pile” and landing in the trash bin.

Even if you’ve accomplished amazing things—earned good grades, elected class president, awarded athlete of the year—a poorly written résumé or cover letter will overshadow those accomplishments.

In this course, you will learn to organize and write résumés and cover letters that show off your strengths and get you noticed. After you complete this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of a résumé and a cover letter.
  • Identify the structure of a résumé and a cover letter.
