Happy Summer! Becker College will be closed on Fridays, beginning June 22 until August 10.


Resume writing is as much of a science as it is an art. The science component includes the “do's” and the “musts.” If you fail to comply with certain resume “laws,” the chances of your resume of ending up in the recycle bin increase. The “art” side of resume includes the style and formatting choices you choose to set your resume apart.

Cover Letters

Most people think of the resume as the document that will make or break your application, but a cover letter can have just as much influence. Employers from all fields value a strong communicator, and the cover letter is often their first glimpse of your writing skills.  The way in which hiring professionals may judge your writing can be very subjective. We help identify best practices you can use to  ensure an effective cover letter and maximize your chance of making a good impression.
