Ace the Application

Tips and resources to improve your application to work with IT

Prepare Your Resume and Cover Letter

IT recommends using Microsoft Word to build and revise your resume and cover letter. 

After you have finalized your application materials, it is recommended to save and upload them as PDFs. Don't forget to rename them with your name!

Tips for Virtual Interviews

Download Microsoft Teams in advance

• Article: How to Join a Teams Meeting

• If possible, we recommend you make your call from a private/quiet room and test your device's audio, video, and internet connection in advance

• We recommend you use the "Blur my Background" feature

• If you have technical issues, please contact the interviewer ASAP or attempt to conduct the interview over the phone as a last resort

Dress Professionally

If you are selected for an interview, we recommend wearing business casual clothing to make a good first impression.

If business casual clothing is not accessible to you, we recommend the following resources:

  • Borrow from a friend or mentor 
  • Check out resale stores locally or online for reduced cost
  • Career Services Career Closet - free for IC students! (Closed for the spring 2021 semester due to COVID-19)
