Options for Professional Document Reviews

  • Use your pre-internship resume as a rough draft to get you started. It was created with the intent of proving you a good professional start.
  • Ask a peer, your field instructor, or another friend or family member review your documents or ask a professional from the field to give you advice (even if it’s a virtual review!).
  • Make an appointment with an MSU career advisor – Click here to see advising options.
  • Send final document(s) – resumes, cover letters, portfolios, or personal statements – to for review (please expect a 3-4 business day turnaround).
