Tor Vergata University of Rome and the MSc in Economics offer its students the opportunity to perform internships in companies and institutions both during their studies and after graduation.
CV and Cover Letter Guidelines
In an attempt to support you, we have created some slides. It will be necessary to follow some general guidelines for what to include and how to cater the information to make the best impression with your employer through your CV.
Your covering letter can be an excellent opportunity to convince your potential employer to concede an interview. This is an opportunity where you can further explain the information on your CV and make a first impression that truly captivates your employer’s interest.
Students may schedule an appointment with the Program Office for both their CV and Cover Letter revision.
