Cover Letters, Resumes & Personal Statements

The Resume

Crisp. Clear. Clean. The resume communicates your specific skills, responsibilities, and accomplishments to prospective employers. It must be structured to emphasize why you are the right choice for the particular position.

Each job application requires a resume with a different focus. Let me help you create yours!

The Cover Letter

The cover letter. It’s not a recap of your resume. It’s your one opportunity to make a great first impression and get you in the door.

When applying for a job, you need a cover letter that makes a clear and effective presentation of yourself and your skills; it must also be tailored to the particular position to which you are applying.

Your cover letter should:

  • Highlight the skills and experience that show your potential employer why you are the best person for the job

  • Demonstrate superior writing and communication skills

  • Express your knowledge and interest in the position, company, or organization and show how you will contribute to its mission, purpose, and goals

Your cover letter may be the deciding factor that will move you forward in your job-seeking process. Let me help you get to the next step and get you noticed!

The Personal Statement

Whether applying to a graduate program, an internship, or for a fellowship or scholarship, the personal statement is your opportunity to distinguish yourself from other applicants with similar objective criteria.

The personal statement ties together your resume or CV, test scores, and application materials by highlighting your own personal story.

I will help you present what lies beyond your objective criteria; your personal statement will allow the selection committee to see you as a unique individual whose personal characteristics and experience have shaped your current aspirations.

"Diane’s assistance played an important role in my acceptance to the PhD Sociology program at Princeton University. The personal statement is a critical part of the application, and working with Diane helped to make my personal statement one of the stronger aspects of my application. Her critical eye for detail, and her ability to help me identify and highlight my personal strengths in a concise and convincing manner, really helped me to put my best self on the page. I recommend Diane very highly!"
