Personal Statements, Resumes and Cover Letters

Writing Center tutors can help writers polish their professional or career-related documents, including personal statements, resumes and cover letters. Tutors can provide resources, models and feedback; however, in keeping with our process-based philosophy of writing, tutors will not proofread or copy-edit these documents for you.

We also encourage you to check out the following services offered by the University at Albany's Career Services (located in Science Library G50 and online at ):

  1. Drop-In Hours in which a Career Services couselor will meet with you to critque your personal statement, resume or cover letter
  2. Information on Cover Letters, including writing tips, samples and workshops
  3. Resources on Resumes, including writing tips, samples and workshops
  4. Job Search Assistance
  5. Help with Interview preparation
