Resume, CV, Cover Letter and Personal Statement Critique

Career and Internship Services offers a free critique service for UMD students and alumni. If you would like assistance with polishing your documents you can either email them to or drop them off in our office at 22 Solon Campus Center.

Before submitting your documents for review, follow the guidelines for writing resumes and cover letters or personal statements* in the Career Handbook.

You must attach the Review Request Form (Word) to your document. Fill out the form by clicking on the shaded fields, then either print it out and attach to your document to drop off or attach the form and your document to your e-mail.

Please allow 5 working days for review of resumes and cover letters, and 10 working days for personal statements, although it may take longer at some times of the year. You will be notified when it is ready to pick up. Documents not claimed after 30 days will be discarded.

For immediate feedback on resumes, please check the Resume Drop-in Hours schedule.

* Personal statements are included with graduate or professional school applications.
