SAMPLE RESUMES, COVER LETTERS, AND POSITION DESCRIPTIONS
A resume and cover letter should always work together as a team to respond to the
specific skills and qualifications sought in the position description.
For this reason, each sample resume-cover letter pair that follows is preceded by the
corresponding job or internship description.
We suggest you:
Review the descriptions and identify the keywords and field-specific terms in each.
Notice how each cover letter cites specific examples from the partner resume that
show where the match is between the applicant and the position, focusing on
results and accomplishments.
Consider how the information on each resume, the categories chosen, and the
language style used respond to the specific wording of the companion description.
Feel free to get help from the Lazarus Center as often as you like with your resume,
cover letters, or any aspect of your search.
