Resume, Cover Letter & Job Search Resources

What should you include in a resume? Is a cover letter necessary, and how does its content differ from the resume? What about a CV? How can you best prepare for an internship or full-time job interview?

Students and alumni may contact the Career Development Center at (630) 829-6040 or career@ben.edu for answers to all of these questions. Schedule an appointment to refine your resume and cover letter or develop new documents. Request an appointment for a mock interview and receive professional feedback on your interviewing skills.
