A résumé is a well-structured, easy-to-read presentation of your own education, accomplishments, experiences, and skills. Our Résumé Guide (PDF) offers advice on what to put in each section, in addition to some sample formats. If you are a first or second-year student (or have little or no work experience), our First-Year Résumé Guide (PDF) may be a good place to start.
Kenyon students and alumni can submit résumé drafts for review by a member of the CDO staff or peer advising team with this link: Professional Document Feedback Request.
The cover letter complements the résumé, providing further insight into how your education, skills, and experience mirror the requirements of the position to which you are applying. Our Cover Letter Guide (PDF) reviews content, how to sell yourself for the position, and tips on creating a successful cover letter.
