DO have someone read your resume and cover letter before you send it out. Seriously, give it to a teacher, a parent, a friend with better writing skills than you have. When I get a badly written resume and/or cover letter, I get so distracted by the mistakes that I don’t pay as much attention to the content. It doesn’t make me want to interview you; it makes me want to edit it in red and send it back to you.2. DO check what you’ve got on your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other online presence. Just like you should be looking up my organization on the internet, we’re looking you up too. We understand that you’re in college and do fun things (we did those things too), but use some discretion on your posts and pictures.3. DO have writing samples available if you’re applying for a position that will require writing. When you send them along, think about the subject matter and relevance. It’s not that I don’t enjoy reading your 20-page paper about the trials and tribulations of wildebeests
