First, you can tailor your resume specifically toward the position you are applying to! It’s okay to have a bunch of different versions of your resume sitting on your computer desktop.
Also, try not to fill your resume up with a lot of generic information – make the resume unique to you! Your recruiter wants to see the most important, most relevant information to the internship you’re applying for, and especially what makes you different. Let your resume shout why you would be a great fit for the role.
Next, it’s never a bad idea to include a cover letter. You may address it to “To whom it may concern,” “Recruiter,” or “Hiring Leader” as there will be many people reviewing applications for our internships. It is also not necessary to include a physical address on the cover letter – a city and state are enough. If you choose to include one, your cover letter should not just restate your resume, but help the recruiter understand why you’re interested in the role or career path, and what makes you distinct. Tell a brief story or share a unique fact as appropriate – we like getting to know you!
Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Your school’s career center should be able to assist in polishing your resume so when the recruiters take a look, they will say “WOW!”
