Resume and Cover Letter Gallery
Our resume gallery provides samples demonstrating best practices in formatting, organization, and content. Many of our resume and cover letters are based on original work from Viterbo students; all samples have been published with their permission. Additional fictional samples were created in collaboration with faculty and staff.
Resume and Cover Letter Toolkit
Our toolkit provides an overview of the basics of resume and cover letter writing, with select samples from various majors.
Template users: Beware! If you built your resume from a template, be aware that your materials may not be read correctly in applicant tracking software (ATS). Check out our ATS-friendly templates, created especially for you by Career Services staff. Our templates are free of the formatting obstacles, such as textboxes, columns, and tables that may affect the readability of your resume.
