Resumes, CV's & Cover Letters
Thayer Career Services' Resume Guidelines with Example Resumes can help you draft your first resume, or perfect an existing one.
In addition to numerous on-line resources for resume writing (see below), Thayer Career Services Library has several books on resume preparation.
A Curriculum Vitae (CV) is a summary of your educational and academic background used to outline your credentials for an academic position, fellowship, or grant. For more information, see Dartmouth Graduate Studies.
A cover letter (or letter of interest) will almost always accompany your resume when applying for internships and jobs. Check out our Cover Letter Guidelines to begin writing yours.
