Prepare Application Documents

As you prepare to apply to colleges, universities or a position in the workforce, you will be asked to submit a resume describing your history and qualifications. You may also be required to submit any number of other documents that help the person reviewing your application, at the college or workplace, to determine whether you are a good fit for their organization.

It is critical that these documents are professional, creative and truly capture who you are now and who you aspire to become through an association with the organization.

College In Colorado has prepared some resource documents to help you prepare these documents. You may also wish to use our resume builder, cover letter creator, job interview practice, practice job applicationPDF icon, and thank you letter creator.
