You will “dress to impress” for your job interview; likewise, your cover letter and resume need to look professional. Tie your cover letter and resume together by using the same header (with your name and contact information) on each document. Use the same font for both; choose a font that is easy to read and not overly formal (avoid anything that appears overly stylized or quirky).
The toughest part of resume writing is the editing! Newly graduated DVMs and experienced DVMs are equally stumped by this one. Distilling years of job experiences and skills down to one page can be tricky! It can also be hard to feel good about a resume that doesn’t seem to have enough experience on it. It is, however, key to keeping your resume on target.
