Document Review
We know that as graduate students, your schedules are busy, and it is not always possible to come in person for a resume review. You may email as a Word attachment your resume, cover letter, application essays, and any other documents to for review. We will review the documents, make suggestions, and return them to you within three University business days during the school year. Please allow eight business days during the summer (July-August).
