Resumes, Cover Letters, and Letters of Inquiry

Resume and Cover Letters: If you don't have your resume prepared at the start of your internship search, get it together soon into the process. Keep in mind that the emails you send to inquire about opportunities should be as professional and formal in style and grammar as would be a written, mailed cover letter. Finally, recognize that many busy professionals are not always able to respond promptly to email, and your inquiry may require one or more follow-up telephone calls. If you're not comfortable making these calls, write yourself a brief script beforehand.
