What should my resume include?

A complete resume should include a description for each full-time professional position you've held in addition to the length of time you were at each position. List the month and year you began and ended each position. Include a reference from each place of employment, so that your length of employment, position, and responsibilities can be verified if required.

What should my cover letter include?

A cover letter or statement of purpose must accompany your application. This letter should address your reasons for pursuing a graduate degree as well as those points from your background and experiences that bring value to the program. These letters are usually about one page in length. The cover letter may be included with your online graduate application or sent under separate cover to the College of Business.

Who should I approach to write a letter of recommendation for me?

Ask for recommendations from those who can comment objectively on your performance in an academic or professional setting. Usually these recommendations are from a supervisor or manager, co-workers or peers, former professors, or other individuals who are able to judge your strengths and on-the-job or academic performance. Friends and relatives are not suitable for recommendations.
