Ahoy! If you are looking to apply for an internship, part-time, or full-time position it is often required that you submit a resume and cover letter. You might scour the web looking for what needs to be included and how to format it-look no further, we have you covered!  


Below is a format and guide showing the sections that should be included.  Take note that this is a guideline and different industries such as government or creative will look for a slightly different format. If you have any questions specific to your resume send us a note at careerdevelopment@park.edu.
