Whether you are just starting out at CMU or getting ready to graduate, thinking about what you would like future employers to know about you is important. Your resumé, cover letter and references all require a good deal of thought, self-awareness and understanding of your ideal audience. The purpose of a resumé is to get you an interview. On average, a recruiter only looks a resumé for about 6 seconds, so you need to make sure your resumé is communicating who you are effectively.

Career Services offers resumé resources such as workshops, electronic demonstrations and handy guidelines and examples.
