The Resume is an organized way to let people know about your education, experience and skills. It also can help you articulate your short term and long term career goals. It helps you get and prepare for an interview and is usually prepared by a person who is applying for a job, internship or volunteer opportunity. It can also be used in your college applications. For most students, a high school resume is their first one.

Your Cover Letter or Letter of Interest grabs the reader's attention and introduces you.

Your Thank You or Follow-up Letter is a good follow-up after interviews or meetings and can show your motivation and interest.

Your Reference Sheet confirms and supports the information in your resume.
