Career Development Center

How It Works:

Step 1: Craft a Resume

  • Start by making a first draft of your resume if you don’t already have one.  Not sure where to start?  No problem.  Review our resume handout and/or meet with a Peer Career Advisor or Career Counselor.

Step 2: Meet with a Professional

  • Have your resume draft reviewed by a professional.  During the month of Resume Challenge the Career Development Center makes a special effort to connect you to a professional at a time that works for you. During your meeting you will receive helpful feedback on ways in which you can make your resume as effective as possible.  On average it can take anywhere between 3-5 drafts to get your resume in top shape.  Don’t get frustrated – your professional will help you get there!
  • Who is considered a professional?  Anyone with experience – they could be an alum, a recruiter, a career counselor, a faculty member, a peer career advisor or a resident career advisor.
