Resumes and Cover Letters

Schedule an Appointment
It is always best to schedule an appointment with a career counselor as a starting point. They can assist with developing your first draft as well as perfecting your final copy. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 607.871.2164 or by submitting an online appointment request form. Feel free to request a specific counselor.

NEW Walk-in Hours
10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday. You are welcome to come in during those hours to meet for up to 15 minutes with a career counselor on a first-come, first-served basis.

Resume and Cover Letter Critiques
We will review your resumes, cover letters, thank you notes, grad school personal statements, grant applications, etc. To use the service, email your document with a request for a counselor to review it; or drop off a hard copy at the CDC. We will get it back to you (or have it available for you to pick up) within one to two working days.
