Did you know that employers spend an average of 20 seconds reviewing each resume? In those seconds, your resume needs to clearly demonstrate how your education, experience and skills qualify you for the position.
At the 1.5-hour long resume clinic, you will receive a short presentation on resume basics, and then get feedback on your resume and cover letters in a small group setting.
Please bring a paper copy of your resume and/or cover letter as well as a copy of any job posting to which you may be applying. Because students will be working in groups, it is challenging to accommodate laptops during the clinics.
Who will benefit most from this seminar?
Graduate students who are starting or are in the job search process.
