    Ok Ashley Lee, now you know that you need a resume. But you'll also need a cover letter. Since the person hiring will be looking at MANY resumes, your cover letter must be strong or the resume won't get a look.

    Now my question is.........WHY are you willing to accept a job as a receptionist with a college degree? Do NOT demean yourself, you've worked hard to achieve a college degree, why seek a job traditionally taken by those with simply a HS diploma or even a GED?

    This is a cover letter, not a resume. Use Microsoft Word Tutorial. Go to the resume section. There are some resume templates that will guide you through the proper approach to a resume. If you were applying for an office position and did not know how to prepare a resume properly, you probably wouldn't get the job.

    yes, this is a cover letter.

    searching for 'free resume builder' online will enable you to just fill out a few boxes here and there and it builds you one. or, the microsoft word thing someone else mentioned.

    also, search for 'sample receptionist resume', itll show you what its supposed to look like.
