Request a meeting with a career advisor for feedback on your resumé, cover letter or other documents. Please e-mail or drop off draft documents in the CDO when you schedule your appointment so we can review them in advance of our meeting with you. Alternatively, you may send an email message with attachments to your career advisor or to lawresume@richmond.edu. Experienced advisors will review your materials and provide feedback within three business days.
