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:

  2. Information on Cover Letters, including writing tips, samples and workshops
