Résumé Assistance and Interview Skills

A potential employer often reviews the résumé first, and this is the time to make that “first impression.” The Career Center offers assistance in creating the all-important résumé in workshop and one-on-one sessions. It is imperative that a résumé is precise, professionally written and succinct. It should showcase who you are, your work history and your employable skills.

Interview Skills assistance, including a mock interview, is also offered.
