Resume Assistance/Interview SkillsResumeclipart

The Career Center offers resume assistance in a workshop format as well as individual resume reviews to offer suggestions for creating the all-important resume. A potential employer often reviews the resume first, and this is the time to make that "first impression." It is imperative that a resume is created in a precise, professional manner that succinctly reveals not only who you are and your work history, but, also what skills you have.

Interview Skills assistance is also offered as well as an opportunity for a mock interview.

Links to a resume worksheet, a helpful list of action verbs, and three resume formats are included to help you create a resume. After you have created your resume, feel free to E-Mail it to the Career Center to make an appointment with a career counselor for review.
