RESUMES
Most employers will only spend fifteen to twenty seconds reviewing your resume. In
this time, you want to capture their attention and interest them in talking with you
further. Follow these basic tips when polishing your presentation:
* Keep the resume to one page. This is very important and in fact preferable for most
fields; two-page resumes are typically appropriate only for those with extensive work
experience or those applying for jobs in the field of education.
* Use action verb statements to describe your responsibilities and accomplishments.
Check the Action Verbs list in the Career Development Office. When describing your
experiences, be sure to emphasize accomplishments and specific projects or
responsibilities.
* A resume should not include personal information such as age or marital status,
words such as "responsibilities" and "duties included" before each description, and
use of the first person "I" or extensive narrative.
* Do your research and learn to speak the employer's language. Employers want to
know one thing: can you do the job that they are looking to fill? The best way to
answer this question is to investigate what skills are valued for the job. The job
description will provide you with a start.
* Be consistent. In the short amount of time that your resume receives, you want the
employer to be able to find the information they are looking for quickly and easily.
Therefore, be sure to place titles, dates, and names in same place within each entry.
Pick a format, font style, and font size, and stick to it. Also, select fonts that are easy
to read, i.e., 10- or 12-point Times New Roman. If you will be mailing your resume to
the employer, be sure to use high quality white or cream paper for both the resume
and any attachments, such as cover letters, writing samples, references, etc.
The TSOA Office of Career Development will do a resume consultation by
appointment. For more information call Kelsey Browne, (212) 998-1916.

COVER LETTERS
A cover letter consists of three parts
Introduction - This paragraph should state who you are, why you are writing, the
position for which you are applying, and where you found out about the job.
Body -This is the place to highlight your qualifications that are relevant to the position
and to the organization. In this section, you sell yourself and your abilities.
Communicate how your skills and experiences can be valuable to the employer. Do
not discuss or apologize for lack of experience. Think instead about what you have
learned and accomplished. Remember to emphasize your strengths with examples,
but avoid restating your resume.
Conclusion - Thank the reader and reaffirm your interest in the position. Indicate the
next step you will take, such as arranging a time when you will call to request an
appointment. Avoid endings that lack assertiveness and do not hesitate to ask for an
interview.
You should be using a different cover letter for each position for which you are
applying. These letters should be tailored to meet the needs of the specific position.
Your letter should be addressed to the specific individual who has the capacity to hire

you. If you do not know who this person is call the organization directly to find out the
correct name and spelling, title, and address.
When deciding how to respond to a job opening, follow the lead of the employer who
has listed the job. If they have provided you with a fax number, use it to send your
resume and cover letter. It is generally acceptable to call an employer if they have
provided a phone number (unless the listing specifically states "no calls").
If you are corresponding via email, remember to keep your message short and to the
point. Resumes can be sent either in the body of your message or as an attachment
depending on the employer's preference. If sending your resume in the body of the
email, remove bold, multiple fonts, and graphic details, as they may be lost in the
transmission. Be sure to send it to yourself or a friend, to test how it is received.

David C. Johnson
Director of Personnel
New Line Cinema
490 Michigan Avenue
New York, NY 10003
Dear Mr. Johnson:
The accompanying resume is in response to your listing in the NYU Film & Television
Media Internship Office for a Development Intern. I will be participating in the spring
semester Internship Program, and am eligible to receive academic credit for my
internship.
I am especially interested in this position because my focus at the Department of Film
& Television has been on screenwriting. Over the past three years here, I have taken
6 screenwriting courses, with my main passion being for feature writing. I would relish
the opportunity to perform script coverage as a New Line Cinema intern.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my experience will
best meet your needs. Therefore, I will call your office on the morning of October 17
to inquire if a meeting can be scheduled at a convenient time.
I look forward to meeting you.
Sincerely yours,
Joyce Peterson (signature)
