NEA taking the past into the future

NEA Resume and Cover Letter Review Program


The New England Archivists (NEA) has made an exciting change to its Resume Review Program. In the past, this program was held in-person at our Spring meetings, but now it has transformed into a virtual format. This shift aims to increase participation, make the program more accessible for those who are not able to attend in-person events and create a more casual environment for valuable and timely feedback. The Membership Committee is thrilled about this evolution of the program and hopes that the new format will benefit all participants.


Our program offers one-on-one asynchronous/remote resume reviews catered to your unique professional background, aspirations, and the dynamic requirements of the archival sector. Receive constructive feedback from experienced archivists to enhance the impact of your resume.

Who Can Participate

The NEA Resume Review and Cover Letter Program welcomes participation from archivists at every career stage, including students pursuing archival studies, early-career professionals seeking guidance, and seasoned archivists aiming to contribute to the professional growth of their peers.

How To Participate

Now is your chance to give back and help out a fellow archivist looking to grow and develop their career. Anyone who has gone through the hiring process is qualified to advise, no matter how new you are to the profession. We are seeking knowledgeable, generous volunteers to review resumes and/or cover letters.

Are you ready to take the next step in your career but need a little feedback? Are you dusting off the old resume after a few years in the same position? Are you crafting a cover letter and want advice on how to stand out? If you are interested in having your resume reviewed by an experienced colleague, sign up to participate! If you are looking for advice on your cover letter it is recommended you supply your reviewer with a copy of the job posting the cover letter is matched to.

Resume/Cover Letter Review Sign-Up


We will make a match and contact both parties to facilitate initial introductions and the exchange of documents. The review can take place at any time that is mutually agreeable to both parties. This event is meant to be an inclusive experience for archivists at all career stages.

If you have questions or concerns about whether participating in the program is right for you, or have feedback, please contact NEA's Resume Review Program Coordinator, Ashley Miller.
