Resume Writing Workshops
This provides a one-hour introduction to writing a resume. You do not need to have a resume written to attend this workshop. However, attending the workshop with a first draft completed can be beneficial so that you can make edits as needed. Academic and career advisors do not review resumes during this workshop, but you can review your resume based on what you learn. There is no RSVP required to attend the workshop.
This provides a 30 minute individual meeting with an adviser in Career & Academic Planning to provide you with feedback on your resume. At minimum, you need to have a first draft of your resume completed to schedule an appointment. Bring a copy of your resume with you to the appointment. You can schedule an appointment online or by calling us at 540-568-6555.
