Here are strong resume and cover letter samples for public relations student and junior level professionals. Note you should customize your resume and cover letter for EACH position, EACH company…avoid the generic letter or cover. Also, be sure to save your cover/resume as your FirstNameLastNameResume.doc and FirstNameLastNameCoverLtr.doc. I have seen far to many ResVer1draft.doc resumes in my agency and academic career!
