SUMMARY: Faculty help finance and quantitative finance majors get career ready by offering feedback on resumes.

A successful job search starts with a strong resume, and faculty in the Department of Finance want to help boost their students’ competitive edge. On Jan. 30, the department hosted the FIN/QFIN Career and Resume Night, an event they’ve hosted every semester for the past nine years. 

The evening started with a presentation on resumes, cover letters and interviews. After that, the red pens came out, and faculty read each participant’s resume and offered suggestions for improvement. The students also learned about internship and job opportunities, along with application deadlines. 

“The event is a great way to help students get ready for internships and job placement opportunities,” says Dr. Pamela Drake, the Chandler/Universal Eminent Professor of Finance. “It’s also a great chance for students to get to know faculty members more personally.”
