Center for Career Exploration

Resumes and Cover Letters

The Brown Center for Career Exploration provides resume and cover letter support for all students.

Resume, cover letter and LinkedIn workshops are offered throughout the year and can be found on our Events@Brown page. Peer Career Advisors (PCA) and Graduate Student Fellows are trained to review your resume, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles during weekly open hours. You can walk in or make an appointment.

The Brown Center for Career Exploration works to create engaging workshops and programs that support your professional growth and help you explore your skills, values and interests. These events also serve as a way for you to connect with employers, community partners and alumni.
If you’re not sure where to start, you might find meeting with another student as a great way to begin.
Meet with one of our highly trained Graduate Career Fellows during open hours to help you get oriented to all the resources of the Brown Center for Career Exploration.
